The Wearing o' (or in) the Green

It's St. Patrick's Day!  We asked our members to share their photos of using green carriers, and you all obliged with a wide variety of greens.  Maybe even 40 shades of green?

  1. Curious as to why the shade of skin tone and ethnic background is relevant enough to be mentioned in the caption of each photo above??

    1. Hi,
      Our members who are blind have asked us to make an effort to describe the photos since their screen readers will read the description to them. I admit that I am still awkward at writing them smoothly such that they are both descriptive and yet brief. Skin tone/hair color, etc is mentioned solely to help create the visual picture for our members using screen readers. I welcome suggestions on how to improve my skills at writing captions.
