Do you want your photos to be remembered?

Here is a link to an interesting article on scientific research into what makes for a memorable photograph.

http://www.physorg.com/news/2011-05-image-tend-pictures-people-wide.html

A few thoughts....

Did we already know this? They have looked at short term memory but presumably the image has to enter short term memory to be able to passs into long term memory.

Apart from purely technical reasons and documentation, why bother keeing non memorable images?

Do we tire of looking at memorable images all the time? Is it better if a photo is more beautiful and less memorable...so you don't get tired of looking at it???
