    Lord Snowdon, apparently, always used to call his photographs 'snaps'.

    'Captures' was briefly popular a year or three back. Prior to that 'images' had a particular popular moment. 'Pics' has been another one to grace our language in speech and print.

    Dear Mike,

    Most of us probably try to be helpful, most of the time. But opposing "snaps" and "winning competitions" as the only spectrum betrays a certain narrowness of vision. First of all, I'm not sure there is a single spectrum. There might be several spectra, but I suspect that in fact there are numerous islands, as I try to illustrate in my weekly column in AP, Final Analysis. I am however entirely sure that there are numerous ways of "trying to be helpful and realistic"; that none of us has a monopoly on the best approach to "trying to be helpful and realistic"; and that different approaches to "trying to be helpful and realistic" will help different people.

    Cheers,

    R.

    I think Capture is still popular in some non-English speaking locations.
