Default Themes

Would it be possible to add the ability to create "themes", i.e. logically link groups of my own photos together that share a common theme?

I for example have lots of photos of a similar subject, but they are taken in many different places at many different times.

What about categories? I can have a page display a category for a specific member if this is what you are looking for. If you have a suggestion for a category I can add it in also.

I'm thinking more along the lines of a single artists "theme". You might have someone that has been concentrating on photographing "cats" for example, and wants to create there own group of photos with a "Cats" theme. Or fungi, cars anything really. I don't know if it would fit with the general idea of TrekEarth though. I guess it could but in the loose sense that there is a common "theme", but of "cats" from the US, Yugoslavia, Vietnam etc.

Something like "folders" might do the trick. But a photo could only be in one folder whereas a photo could logically be part of more than one theme.

I guess it would be something along the lines of user-created categories. Let me think about that one a bit.

That's true (photo be part of more than one theme).
As an example, though not necessarily what I'd use a "Theme" function for; I have a lot of photos of trees. I also have a number of sunsets. One of my sunsets contains an interestingly shaped tree. So this photo could be in both a "Trees" theme and a "Sunsets" theme.

But wouldn't user created categories be for use by everyone? Of course, that might be good too, but I'm thinking more along the lines of being able to create a theme to logically group your own photos.
Really pretty much like the "Trips" function. Whereas Trips logically groups photos from a specific journey, Themes would link photos with a common Theme.
A TrekEarth user could then click on a user name, going to the artists page and then seeing a list of, Countries & Trips as now, but also a list of "Themes" that that artist had created. Click the name of the theme and you see a page of photos taken by that artist that have a common theme. They would not necessary be from the same country.
