    I think you need to flesh this out a bit. What kind of book? What kind of photographs? Documentary? Fine art? Are they stand alone or relate to text or?

    @gsgary: I would say 15 out of 366 is not that bad. Had you finished high school you would know that's less then 5%. Unless you have something productive to say, please don't waste your time.

    @CWyatt: The book is a year round series of meditations. Each day has a title, a series of related readings and a meditation at the end. The pictures I'm dealing with at the moment are the title picture for each day.
    There really isn't any specifications I was given for the style of the pictures as long as they make sense and don't look like crap. For example, one of the days is called "growing old gracefully" and the title picture is a joyous old woman. Nothing too complicated, but some of the titles are - as you can see - abstract.
