"Memorable" isn't the same as "good." Despite landscape images' being low in memorability, my wife nevertheless bought a 36" x 24" frame and more or less demanded that I fill it with one of my Yosemite pictures. This was something I was nervous about doing because the large size would also magnify any defects in resolution. Fortunately, the picture found a place above the living room couch, where the couch serves to discourage an unduly close approach to the image.

I agree Scoundrel that memorable does not necessarily translate into good.
I would prefer a lovely landscape hanging on my living room wall over an image of a flying pair of scissors for sure.

These images may be memorable, but I would trip the shutter on only a few of them, and I would rate none of them to be a truly exemplary photographic image.

I agree scoundrel.
I think their main appeal is to make a big, unforgettable initial impression.

I would think that what and how you shoot is a personal thing. What is your real goal, making money or making something that makes an impression and expresses you as an artist and then you go from there.
