Cactus, cactus bo bactus, bananafacto bo dactus, you get it.
Today I named an image "Desert Dalliance" No lie. I'd laugh as I typed it if I wasn't so tired of it. But what was I gonna do? Hang at the keyboard for 20 minutes waiting for some kind of inspiration? Find a thesaurus and come up with some erudite, snobby-assed word that proves I can use a thesaurus? Maybe I should call 1-800-MUSE ? (I actually did that. Lets just say that her idea of "muse" was somewhat divergent from mine, and after 25 minutes of listening to her, I discovered what the rates were, and had to hang up). Should I rip off another song? Oooh, I know, I can do another really bad pun...(seriously, no effort all for that one)
About a million photogs shooting tens of thousands of images and all - have original and unique titles. If I had a dime for every Plateau Light I've seen, (including my own), I'd be able to download a couple of Ian Plants ebooks (wonderful value, btw).
No matter what I feel about it, once in a long while, a title will be so appropriate that it will seemingly add something to the dimension of the piece, and so the game goes on. As you can tell I spend little time on it. I'd as soon call it %#^&*(@. My total alltime fav was, once I stood next to shooter who was rambling through various titles as he shot the image..."Tangerine Dream"...no, no, "Creamcycle Delight", he muttered as he extended the tripod. "Autumn Extravaganza" he exclaimed excitedly.
Tonight I settled on alliteration. I did have fun with the Muse, tho...
