OK, lame title. There’s O2 written on the lost balloon, which suggests that H2 might be written on the heart-shaped balloons(?) Please, DPers, help me: compete to caption this properly! This is just like a New Yorker contest, and the winning entry will be published…as will all other entries if left on the message board. (I will not delete.)

This was taken from the porch of the Welsh Senate looking south out into Cardiff Bay. The church is the far distance is St. Augustine’s. Not pictured, but a few hundred feet to the left is the Norwegian Church, where Roald Dahl was christened. There is Rohl Dahl Plas somewhere nearby, perhaps this was it. OK, get to work: I have faith in you.

  1. You want me to come up with a better caption? Have you seen MY captions recently? Sheesh. No way.

    Not that I’m any sort of expert on photography (and I know you disapprove of my “extensive GIMPing”), but I might’ve desaturated the red signs on the right and the purple garbage bag on the left. The entire picture is so colorless except for the little girl, her balloons, and the objects I’ve mentioned… and my eye is drawn to the signs and garbage bag as much as it is drawn to the main subject, the little girl.

    I really like this picture, though. It’s very cute and very UK (wait a minute, how are you posting pictures of Wales on a Bath DP site?).
