While there is symmetry at play in Athena's toy, the context creates the interest, complexity and potential for further depth - that which provides richness and appeal. How do you create an 'interesting' photograph (...or for that matter, document or presentation)? What are the qualities that define 'interesting' to you? What draws you back to a photo more than once? Is 'interest' due to personal preference or are there commonalities that we all share in describing 'interesting'?

Please respond and we can all share in the answers! :) In my own 365 project and in working with students in our Through Global Lenses pilot, some photos really lend themselves to comments (whether or not they end up getting scribed)...I'm very interested in learning why - I personally think there's something beyond basic design principles (though those are acknowledged!).

  1. I think interesting is often what you don't see.
