Didn't want to.

The first, the clock, and the one with the cat or in Lucca--interesting. But not that interesting. "Ooh, look at that!" comes to mind. Good tourist photo.

Son leaned to the moon/branches photo. But said, ultimately, "Yeah, no, not that good--sort of a common aesthetic."

I laughed at his remark to "People are shadows"--"They clicked the camera by accident and thought *that* was their best picture from vacation?"

He's on the spectrum. But son of a HS science teacher/ABD Slavic/certified in social studies + Linguistics PhD, he can be a bit scary. This is his "thing."
