these all work probably as well as something that samples the colors of the 
images. and only because of careful consideration of these, on the part of 
the google algorithms: the language in the html page in which the image is 
embedded; especially the language within and right around the <img> tag; the 
user response volume (click volume) to the image in image search results. in 
other words, semantic analysis begins with establishing correlations and 
then testing those correlations against human response. this is how the 
machine learns the meaning of 'red'.
