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.

Yes. I really enjoy your titles and add to the vision of your photographs. 😉
Thanks for the quick feedback!
@Juan: Thanks! I hope I didn’t offend you on some of them.
@Michael: I’ll probably start leaving some of them untitled.
dude, I really like your photographs but i can definitely do without some of the titles. Great photography though.
I think a description can add to the overall story of a photograph. But definitely, don’t force yourself to think of them.
I have to concur with Diana, Bryan. I really think your titles add to your photos.
Not at all. I think you work is great. It speaks for itself is what I meant in my earlier comment.
