Six-Word Caption Contest #9 (and winner #8)

Monday, November 12th, 2012

By meredith

firstcarSMITH and Shutterfly’s Six-Word caption contest revs up this week with a shiny, new photo. If you don’t know the drill, each Monday morning we post a photo from Shutterfly on the Six-Word Memoir project and you have until Friday at 5pm EST to write a six-word caption. One savvy six-word scribe wins a gift certificate for $50 for Shutterfly. So leave your six words that get to the essence of the photo you see here in the comments area below. You can submit up to 10 entries; read the official rules for more details.

Last week hundreds of you chimed in to describe the photo you see in this blog post. And the winning six is: “Bright light, blurred memory, dancing shadows.” by Rebekahb. Thanks to all for playing—and good luck this week.

Plus: Don’t miss your chance to catch SMITH on the road! Check out this post and our new SMITH Live section for the latest updates on upcoming tour dates.
