This was made for Dalene back in November 2008, and really started me on a path I try to continue today .. that of using pictures that tell the story without using words. The bicyclist isn't really the focal point of the photo, but I wanted him to be a part of the finality of the caption. Once I figured that out, it was up to me to find out what the story was behind the picture and augment it with text.
I could see that it was an early morning street crossing, since there was no one else around and the streets were deserted. I figured that Dalene was returning home from a night out, and was almost on a walk of shame we've all been through when we return home from a night of partying wearing the same outfit we were in the last night. By the time I was done, it reminded me of "Sunday Morning Coming Down" by Johnny Cash, so I titled it that: even posting some of the lyrics which I'll reprint here...
'Cause there's something in a Sunday, That makes a body feel alone.
And there's nothing short a' dying, That's half as lonesome as the sound
Of the sleeping city sidewalk, And Sunday morning coming down.
Discussion question: What makes you choose the pictures you choose when making a caption? Is it dependent on the person or idea you have, or do you have a definitive method of choosing?
