Using Photoshop, Photoshop Elements or similar software packages it is possible to use the lay out of the caption to expand the story.
The fact is that doing something like this isn't that hard. If you use Photoshop Elements, as I do, you will have to learn how to handle layers and transparency, but that is quite easy to do.

I just love it!
Below I have also included her Perfect Package cap. The contrast between the red and black rectangular fields are perfectly balanced. Mmmm.
Victoria Hyde takes this up one more level, using the typography to express the difference between the inhuman computer and the bewildered victim in Bonding Process.

I definitely have some catching up to do.
By the way, Victoria's site Codex of Corruption is a good example of how you can use the Tumblr blog platform (instead of Blogger) to design a great blog.
