Does an image *need* a 'meaningful' title so that the viewer understands 
more readily what is going on?

  I understand that some images may be obvious, but what if they're not to 
the viewer?

 I'm having problems at the moment with what to name some of my <hopefully!> 
minimalism images, (about five of them).

After looking up a lot of the minimalist artists and their works I'm 
beginning to think minimalism means not having anything going on.  Very 
basic nothings seems to be the key.

Maybe a series... nothing #1, nothing #2 etc...

    Yeah, thanks Ron, I see where this is heading for me and your suggestion 
seems reasonable, although, I have different subjects for each image.

     I dunno, I'll have a think about it.

Well you can provide a description in the text file, so really the title 
needn't explain anything. Though I suppose that raises the question 
should you provide a description?

    Ah! Yes, Tek. Good question. I always thought 'minimalism' should be 
self explanatory?
