I think I wanted to do more bondage caps anyway.

Oh Whal.



Okay, so I made a terrible mistake--I wrote a caption before choosing a picture.  Now one of the core elements of my captioning doctrine is that the picture tells a story, and I just put it into words.  Of course, this doesn't work too well if you start from the wrong end, which is what I did.  So I spent a few hours scanning the internet for a suitable picture, and found one which *sigh* I guess fits.  So I took the picture, started into it.  Of course, having written the story before having the picture, I didn't count on its length, and it didn't fit into what I consider to be an aesthetically pleasing size.

So there I was, with a bunch of caption pieces that didn't fit together, and no way to salvage them.  So I threw it all away, and hoped for better luck on the next one.  So, for now, the world will be without another incest-crossdressing-pedophilia-gay seduction captions.

Change


This picture was originally going into a much larger cap, but I really couldn't figure out how to end it.  It languished as an unfinished .xcf for a few months, and then, as I was working in the garden today, this phrase came to mind.  It's sort of a summary of a chapter of Chesterton's "Orthodoxy", but I thought it would make a great cap.  Started looking through my "girls" folder for a sweet couple pic, and here this one was!  Boy, this was a long commentary for such a short cap.
