No, no one has any idea why I’m there, but isn’t that part of the romanticism of an image? The trying to figure it out. Why was the photographer there?? What did they see? What made them take that image? Personally I always think about when viewing other peoples photos, but maybe that’s just me.
To me that is where the real connection but also agree that a viewer needs to connect. The thought goes to how does one interpret that connection? Do you connect with the image maker or do you connect by seeing yourself in the scene.
