Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting Moment #4

Dad Wrote "Cpt Walter L. Buenger"

Dad Wrote “Cpt Walter L. Buenger”

This picture from my father’s World War II photo album has always fascinated me. I notice Cpt. Buenger is wearing an MP helmet but why is he pointing? Is he standing directing traffic or has he caught someone doing something wrong? What do you think?



  1. There’s a bit of swagger in that pose!

    • Ha! I was just going to say that it looks like a dance move with attitude. 😉

    • I know he reminds me of those traffic cops that do all the dancing! lol

      • Yes! That is exactly it.

  2. Maybe he’s saying, “Hey, you better make sure your daughter puts this on the internet in 70 years!”

  3. “You’re gonna name your daughter WHAT?! After that town we were just in?!”

  4. I guess the appropriate caption would be, “What’s the Point?” The Captain’s expression isn’t of a stern nature. Maybe it’s a “Now, that’s what I was talking about. You guys need to tighten it up a bit–just like that.”

  5. ha, ya ya….I get the impression that the picture taker wasn’t suppose to be there and jokingly and defiantly clicked it anyways….probably laughing all along

  6. I just adore these old photos of your father’s. We are so lucky you share them with us.

  7. Looks like “Put that damned camera away and get back to work!!!” LOL. Good challenge choice

    • ah hahaha that thought ran through my mind too!

  8. Hey, after you take my picture, let’s go eat!

  9. That’s one serious attitude!

  10. The entire body language is just wonderful! Maybe it’s his version of “Uncle Sam Wants You.” 🙂
