It seemed (and seems) to carry a bit of inescapable coercion with it, or something institutional and professional. I would certainly go to a professional photographer to have pictures made for a graduation, a yearbook, a wedding, etc. But I (or a friend or relative with a camera) would be more likely to take pictures, and such pictures more likely to be taken than made. --Rudy Troike (rtroike[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]ccit.arizona.edu)
