General overall comments to the exercise:
Click on first image to see full set in full view
It’s always interesting to get an insight from other practitioners about how they view particular images. In this case the captions were varied but followed in some ways similar traits. Most of the captions carried a tinge of humor. This adds in some cases and in others promotes a certain way of seeing the images and made me wonder wether this would fall into the category of anchorage or relay in terms of the contextual/textual setting of the photos.
