Natalia Pogonina's "Create a caption" contest
Page 2
Natalia has just thrown one of her fans off the bridge for not solving a chess problem.
Who's next?


Lately we've been adding lots of my pics (see the new albums as well as the new photos in the old albums at the Gallery) - hope you'll like them. Contributors - your pics would be very much appreciated, just send them to This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

The photo above features me in a park at her home city Saratov. The trivia will have two questions:
1) Create a caption for the pic
2) Guess when the photo was taken (at least the year)

The winner's response will become the actual caption of the photo in 3 days from the post's "published on" time.

Good luck!

And the winner is Gennady with his caption "Natalia has just thrown one of her fans off the bridge for not solving a chess problem. Who's next?". Unforunately, nobody guessed the correct date right, it was August, 18, 2006.

Thanks to everyone for participating!

I amn't participating in the contest since I know the exact date :-) 
But my caption would have been "Play me!" :grin
