Caption

Carnation, WA, USA - June 12, 2013: A bag of Skittles, a can of Arizona Iced Tea and a 9mm bullet.



Rejection Reason



The caption information for this submission is either too brief and does not describe the scene successfully, or it is unclear, or both. The caption is where you supply the 4 W's:

Where was the image made? When was the image made? Who or what is in the image?

What is happening in the image? Please provide adequate information, clearly, and

entirely in English.



Please provide captions in this format:



City, Country ? Month Date, Year: Caption descriptive text.



For more information on accurate captioning, please see this thread:

The thread mentioned doesn't exist (or isn't accessible via that URL). Any help on what I should add to the caption?

Hi Ron, the caption text needs more information on location (studio shot etc) and in the case of this unusual combination of objects a little more background info would be helpful too.

just edited to add, the correct link would be this:

How about this?


Carnation, WA, USA - June 12, 2013: Studio shot of a bag of Skittles, a can of Arizona Iced Tea and a 9mm bullet.  All elements from the February, 2012 incident in Sanford, Florida where neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin who was walking home from a store where he bought Skittles and an Arizona Iced Tea.
