I don't take this as a "How To" book  I myself get more from looking a pic's than reading., must be the kid in me.  I really like the captions next to each pic, gives me a insight of the photographer Geo Barr, and how to improve on my own pictures.  I've had this for several weeks now and go back to it a lot for tips and…

Hi Don,

Yes I agree about causing the viewer to think. The purpose of any image to evoke an emotional response in the viewer, and I had one. One of the things I have learned over the years is that I don't have to "Get" nor do I have to "Understand" an image to like it. Thanks for posting today and sharing your thoughts with me.
