Talking old nemisis is back

I thought this would be worth a good shot, if not a good chuckle.
See what you can come up with.

There's a hazard you don't see everyday.

Just put a golfball on the knuckle and I think you have a winner.

Interesting....very interesting. That rail running through the bottom of the photo really threw me, because when I first looked at it, I thought it was a glitch in the photo, some blue line which randomly showed up. Upon closer examination, I realized it was the rail, but the way it the top of it reflects the sky makes it pop from the shadows in a way that seemed unnatural at first glance!

It threw me to. Maybe I should re-crop, (crop the rail and some of the dark car on the left) and re-submit.

Why? It's a shot of couplers with one part cut off at the bottom, behind the scene is an ugly chain link fence and a nice tree but cut off at the top; somewhere lost in the detail is a barely-visible pin. It's not an especially attractive or interesting coupler shot, and the background is not raising the composition quality. Sorry to be harsh, but to me it has "low esthetic qualities" written all over it.

OK lets get back to playing golf.

So what you're saying Janusz is this picture is "below par".

I know, but that was part of my point of taking this picture.
"How far to the pin?"

I was also confused by the blue line - But then it hit me. Pesky golfer must have over-clubbed.

First thing I noticed is that "Esthetic" is spelled incorrectly. It's "Aesthetic."

I'm thinking the yellow club would putt the purple ball through the windmill without any trouble...

Yep, it's a coupled whatever? The golf course in the background looks more interesting.

Whatever you see.
"To pin" can also refer to "to couple" - or in golf... ?
These are wood chip cars, so I made some reference about a chip shot.
But most of all, on a sunny day at work or school, how often are we dreaming about being somewhere else?

There you have it. So you can fill in your own caption.
