It's In the Title

25 Mar 2021 11:39PM   Views : 551 Unique : 396

I like snappy titles to my pictures, or indeed blogs, when I think of something quirky I sometimes wonder if anyone ever picks it up, or is it just for me to enjoy a bit of a twinkle of mischief....So I'm going to have a look at some images that have titles that I've half inched from something or other- very often song titles, or a play on them. As Graham Williams (ex-producer of Doctor Who in the Tom Baker days) once said - we only use original ideas - other people's original ideas.

We Three, song title

Oh my giddy aunt, old phrase often used by Pat Troughton as Doctor Who

Little Dog's Day, title of book by Jack Trevor Story

The curious case of the countless clues, episode title from The Avengers

Red Lips, song by The Village Voices, 1959

A Whiter Shade of Pale, song title

The Lion Sleeps Today, parody of song title

Sisters, song title

You Put Your Right Leg In.....

Take Three Girls, after the BBC TV series

Happy Days, after the TV series

The Sleeper, after the film title

Cheeky Blinders, a parody of the TV series

Deep Purple, after the rock band

Soap, after the TV series

Well, it's a bit of fun even if it only amuses me.....

The Pentax and the Butterfly

Always Carry a Camera

I make a point of always carrying a camera, just to capture anything and everything that catches my eye as we carry on with the minutiae of life. I was in Atherton and just heading for the shop that sells fuses and passed a small alleyway that used t...

You are not alone John, I also think the title is important if you are displaying something.
I sometimes ponder for quite a while trying to think of an appropriate title when uploading anything.
I am also a great believer in adding some context in the description.
I like to know at least the location, and maybe story, behind an image.
It all adds value to the viewing experience. (I can't believe I just used that phrase) 😂
