Those eyes that see

I recently overheard someone make a comment about macro shots of flowers and pictures of cats being clichés of flickr. Well, perhaps it is true. And perhaps landscapes and nudes are clichés also--for there is no shortage of either. And I suppose also that, in this line of thinking, no great landmark is worth seeing for oneself, considering how many snapshotting tourists have soiled it with their unskilled depictions.

This is nonsense. An interesting subject is worthy of study no matter how many people have studied it before.
