I wrote this caption a few weeks ago, and I have to say, I really like the idea. I admit that sometimes I get caught up in the back story of my captions. I can't help it. I always want to make everything "make sense." So I find myself concocting these alternate histories/futures where my captions and stories achieve that goal.
Rather than try to focus on that world-building in a caption which should tell a simple story, I chose to make a caption telling the history. And I think it works magnificently well. The picture is very sexy and the caption tells an interesting back story.
For some reason, I love making these kind of plaid backgrounds. They aren't easy to get right, but I do like the way they turn out.
Hope you all enjoy this one.
