Laguna Beach: CalmWhen I arrived at the title for this post it came to me that I could pick a word randomly from the dictionary and then select a picture that best reflects it.

But the fact that judging a photo is a subjective process and no one judges a photo or any other creative object the same.

So for this picture I could have come up with hundreds of single word titles that would be just as good as the one I selected.

For a test I got my real paperback dictionary* and opened it to two pages of E. The first word was exalt and the last word was exhale.

Going to two pages where all the words started with EX wasn't a good start to my experiment but I never the less went through the two pages of EXs and decided on exclusive. Not very original but there it is.
