Flowers. Even a monkey can take nice flowers pictures.

Flower pictures are pretty, and nice, but they generally say 'this-is-a-flower' and nothing more. In a minute they are forgotten forever, a favored topic of people with a shortage of inspiration. Of course I'm speaking for myself, others will certainly disagree.

Sometimes an image is about shape, colour and texture; not every image needs to tell a story.

Pretty is fine if that is what one enjoys. I've forgotten countless pretty pictures though; if you enjoy them, that's all that matters.

For me, an image without a story is like reading a parts listing instead of a novel.
