The abstract themes do take a bit more thought about how to convey  
the theme. I thought Leica users were just that bit smarter. I  
personally liked the desolation and conflict images a lot.

How about some of these?

1) After dark
2) Small
3) Extremes
4) Work
5) In the home
6) That fleeting moment
7) Passion

Will that do for starters?

Best wishes,
