    Smile association

    Please check out the following sentences. Are they acceptable?

    (1) What association do you have with this picture?
    (2) This picture gives me the association of the age of resource shortage.

    Re: association

    Do you mean "What do you think of when you see this picture?" or perhaps "What comes to mind..." or "How do you feel when... "?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
