SBL Photo Caption Contest

I thought I’d share two photos of me from this year’s Society of Biblical Literature conference in New Orleans, and solicit captions. The winners will be rewarded by having their captions added to the photos as the “official” captions, recognized as the winners, as well as receiving the deep sense of satisfaction that always accompanies such achievements. The second of the photos appears to have been touched up ever so slighly; the first is offered in its raw, pristine original form.

Let the captions – and the fun – commence!

    I think the title of post after this one would make a perfect caption for the first photo"High on Christology: Up in Smoke….the SBL version"
