Small observation: Semantics

It just occurred to me, while visiting the homepage of, what a difference in meaning one small word can make in a phrase. Consider “Photo of the week.” That term suggests a competition, the winner of which gets to be so for a whole week. Now, if the author doesn’t intend the title to reflect a competition but rather be an invitation for discussion (which is the impression I got from visiting the website), a more apt title is “Photo for the week.”
