A Thousand Words

Have you ever heard that phrase “a picture is worth a thousand words?” I believe this statement to be true, so how does anyone, professional writer or not, decide on an appropriate caption for a picture? A caption is usually only a few words, and since the picture is valued at a thousand words, which words do you choose to portray the message of the photo, and yet still allow the imagination of the viewer to be included. Whew! Tough assignment, huh?

Below is a picture that totally cracked me up, and so many thoughts came to mind as I studied the photo. Since tricycles are used to describe my little place here -the 3 wheeled blog- how could I not bring this up? However, this photo deserves a caption, so let’s work together and brainstorm some ideas.

I would love to use this photo as an award to pass on to fellow bloggers, but not sure how exactly that works. If you can help me out with this information, that would be great. Until then, I can’t wait to read your suggestions for a caption. So leave a comment with your suggestion–can’t wait to read what few words out of a thousand made the cut. Let’s get started!!!

  4. That picture is hysterical. I like “living outside of the box” and “Some days you know you just aren’t going anywhere” TFS

  5. I sent this pic to my husband once with a message that said “you know this is gonna be our kid someday, right?” It even looks a little like my husband. Ha ha. The only caption i can come up with is “crying isn’t gonna get you there any faster!” Is that mean? 😉

  6. How about….”note to self, be more specific when making wishes”


    “some days it doesn’t pay to be different”


    “I just HAD to be different”
