The recent thread started by ricstew "baby with flower" created many emotional responses from members. I am sure that many other members viewed the thread and did not make a comment because it made them too emotional, or did not want to offend Jan.
I wonder whether a theme for photo of the week could be on the lines of "convey a message".
We see many images on TV or magazines that pull on the heart strings. Many advertisers for things like road trauma, alcohol and smoking use images that are intended to leave an impression to make one think.
If you like the idea, the image title should contain no more than 3 words that convey the message within the image.
Just a thought.
