Photo Haiku - New Art Form

This post is just a heads up for some of the folks here.

I was watching an episode of Photo Haiku on NHKJAPAN and it involved combining a photo with haiku. This show has been running for quite some time and it seems to be attracting quite some amount of rising interest.

What caught my eye was the fact that their weekly contest attracted quite a number of entries from all over the world, with the highest participation from the US.

I feel that the haiku allows the photographer to tell viewers exactly what he feels about the shot and how that photo is to be interpreted.

3 lines of text can add value to the photo, or detract value from it if not done well.

What do you think?
