A Little Drop of ... Poison?
Wanted to post something for people to look at this weekend. I'll try to look at the links in the previous post and add some to the side for my viewing pleasure. Keep them coming!! No need to stop just because there is a newer blog post!
This is the other caption I made while listening to Tom Waits. I had the picture for Chelsea, but hadn't the real concrete idea until I got to the lyrics for "A Little Drop of Poison" which seemed to go really well with the image. I didn't want to go the way most people would though with the picture and the song title. Figured I would work around it. Witches, especially those in the past, were often just herbalist/chemists, so went with that. Since the picture has a cat (familiar) and tea cups (Chelsea is from the UK) .. I just went with what works, and I think it did work. Sometimes I like to make guys lives better when they turn into women. I guess I have a soft touch occasionally!
DISCUSSION: How often do you just take what the image gives you, versus trying to stretch around and give the story something that is slightly off the beaten path? For me, I wanted to do it here because Chelsea had given me a great caption and I wanted to make the capback something more special.
