Thursday Photo Caption Contest

Sidewalk airbagsā€¦because safety is our #1 priority

It was a tough choice between human-trails and anti-tree safety devices, but our team of judges finally had to go with Penny M, whose caption succinctly captures the importance of safety! We’ll email you a code to use for 15% a puchase in our eStore.

Although these do appear to be colorful elongated airbags, they are in fact part of an art installation. The photo is from the DOCUMERICA series, taken by different photographers sent out into the field by the Environmental Protection Agency. The full caption reads “D’Aug Days (pronounced dog) is a month long presentation of all the arts at downtown Cincinnati’s immensely popular public plaza, Fountain Square. Jonanthan Ahearn’s inflatable sculpture, 08/1973.”

This week’s image is not in sunny Cincinnati, but somewhere far creepier! Give us your best caption in the comments below.
