True...(about the 0) - my omission there (origninally typed 12 and deleted
the 2).

The description is simply what hits me first when I see the picture, or what
I thought while composing it. Place, Person, Object, Name, etc. Since most
of my photographs consist of people and environments, I can usually peg a
description in 3 or 4 short words.

etc...
