Horse in Window

I can never decide if I enjoy naming photos or not!
I think I enjoy it when I come up with a good name, and I don’t like when I come up with a boring name. Let’s take this one for example: "Horse in Window." I mean, how uncreative can I be? What’s wrong with me?
When I am editing photos, and the muse visits, I am like a man possessed. I can rip through a bunch of photos and make some nice little creations. But then I click "Save As…", and I just blank out on a name. I think the creative part of my brain for making photos is different than the part for naming things.
I do enjoy writing, and I often find that the words flow easily. This bit of me seems disconnected from the photo-editing bit, though.
There is a small slice of solace, I think, in considering the names of some of the great paintings from my impressionist heroes. They have names like "Girl in Field" and "Sun on Water". Not too exciting, but they do stand the test of time. But "Horse in Window"? I think not!
