You Be the Judge:  Which Marshmallow is “Perfectly Roasted?”

Ok, so my family went camping in the Colorado Rocky Mountains — and had an epic marshmallow-roasting-contest.  My kids thought they roasted the perfect marshmallow.  But I thought I had it nailed.  “Dad!  Put photos on your speaker blog!”   So here they are.

Will you help us judge the contest?  Who do YOU think won?

Cast your votes below!  Which Marshmallow is perfect?  Leave your choice (and the reason you voted for it) below.

I took this photo while going through Denver International Airport.  Got this shot off before a TSA guy “asked” me to knock that off.  (I wanted to get one from a different angle, but couldn’t get the guy to let me.  (I did make the TSA guy laugh…but I couldn’t get him to “look the other way.”   Goodie…. chalk one up for safety!)

Why is this caption writing relevant to you? Caption writing is a great exercise to loosen up your creativity skills. I’ve done this at the beginning of meetings with a few different photos and the result is a fun, relaxing, team-building exercise. Remember the rules: there is no such thing as a bad caption or idea. Write them all down, and celebrate the VOLUME of captions more than the QUALITY.

Need to kick start a meeting? Try this exercise and see the energy and creativity get a boost even before you start.
