We had a discussion on titles recently, and when Andy suggested in a comment on this photo, that is was 'asking' for captions, I thought, why not?
We do not have a Captions thread yet, and maybe we should.
I'm not very good at thinking of witty, catching titles, but I know some (or maybe even a lot) of you are.

So feel free to have a go, and add photos of your own, that need one.

Love the idea.. a caption can tell a thousand stories.
as for this photo, it reminds me of a portfolio that demonstrated the impact of mobile phones on society.

On this occasion how about...

Hi Mom, I'll call you later, I'm busy.

or perhaps...

"where is that procedure manual"

but for a photo title, maybe

New Age Policing.

Thanks Jen. I called it: "The adoration of the Laptop," with the byline: "We all bow to technology."

I don't want this to be another competition like thing, just a bit of fun to see what people come up with.
There must be many more 'out of the box' possibilities.

"I think Im in the right place but still searching Roger?...!" '

"We will find you even if we have to crawl"

"Someones stolen the car but it can't be far away Roger?...!"

"Just having a good google like you said Sir"
