Cultured Caption Contest : No.1

There are many Humorous Caption Contests, ranging from The New Yorker to Cinematical, but I thought we’d try a different slant. Let’s try a caption contest whose goal is to provide an erudite quip, a recondite comment, a pretentious aphorism.

I won’t necessarily penalize for humor, but I’m looking for arrogant, show-off-y knowledge and/or obscure, artistic references, et cetera. I’m not above sending out a prize for the best one, but for now we’ll consider recognition as suitable enough reward. The contest will go for one week, after which (next Wednesday) I’ll declare a winner from the suggestions posted in the comment section and provide another picture to flout our obnoxiousness over.

The frame is from Krzysztof Kieslowski’s brilliant “Amator” (poorly translated as Camera Buff):
