Art or story?

Having waded through all of the photos that I took while in Boston, I've been asking myself - do they tell the story of our holiday? Is this my objective when taking photos or am I trying to create/ capture some form of art? What would I need to change to incorporate the element of narrative (I already know about the shortage of people photos!)?
And even as I ponder these questions That Hideous Man posts an entry on his blog that combines both aspects! I think his still life on a medical theme is particularly impressive, although a blood-stained action shot would have rounded off the tale.

Thankyou!

The blood theme was curtailed by the urgent need to start carpet cleaning!

THM - you need to sort out your priorities! By the way, how is the foot?

My priorities are not necessariy those of the person who had just extracted the object from my foot!

The foot is fine now... in fact as soon as the sharp bit was taken out, I could walk on it again..
