Captions are always a matter of choice. If you want your viewers to see a genie in a box here, they will. But that won't stop them from seeing other things, either. On the other hand, if you don't want to focus their vision on genies at all, then change the caption. I like it the way it is.

They definately forgive me, Phil. They always indulge me - I'm the most fortunate wife and mom. Shall I remove the caption? and let imaginations go where they will?

I deliberately did not read your caption until I wrote the comment below this one. I still like this shot, even though you have taken away most of the mystery with that caption. As for the overcooked Zucchini, I will forgive you, but I am not sure your family will.

Who let the genie out of the box, Jenene? That's what I thought of when I first saw this as a thumbnail, and the more I look at it, the more mysterious it becomes. The box becomes a building and the genie becomes a cloud, but the coloration and shape of the cloud is surreal. It is like a giant bird, a firebird, rising out of one of the ancient temples at Angkor Wat. You hit my imagination in the right spot with this abstract and incongruous image, Jenene.
