Are words a necessary companion with photos?

As I continue taking photos into 2009, should I add a brief comment or description to each photo I publish [to Flickr]?

I don’t want to force the issue, but I know that it can sometimes enhance how we view photos.

For the record, I try pretty hard to conjure abstract titles for my photos whenever possible. I have Thomas Hawk, Karen Strolia and Andrew Moore to thank for that.
