Back on Sept. 29, in our Best of Syracuse edition, we ran the following Michael Davis photograph and asked readers to submit a caption to that photo. While some of the entrants thought the water was colored orange when Davis took this photo, he assures us it was red. Here are the entries, with the winner selected by our crack editorial staff.
Thanks to all who participated.
And the winner is:
“Bloody Marys for all at the Inner Harbor! Please bring your own celery!”
“Blood, sweat & tears.” (Michael Robinson)
