I would agree with this assessment.  A photo caption is part of your 
content, isn't it?  If it is, it should be in the HTML.

I would put the image and the caption together in a div, and style the 
div to taste.

You could also make the caption a title attribute of the IMG.  That 
would make the text a popup in most browsers.

<img src="clown.jpg" title="Bobo entertains the kiddies"  alt="photo: 
Bobo the clown making balloon animals for a laughing girl">
