 Hi! Thanks for bringing up the issue. It was intentional that categories
 were not included in search. There are only a handful of them and they are
 quite broad. You'd be just as well off simply navigating to the archive of
 the desired category.

 The Photo Directory uses the built-in WordPress search, so in general it
 is quite simplistic and limited in what it can do.

 That said, there's no real harm in allowing categories to be included in
 the search.

 Or perhaps we just need to surface the link to the category listing, as
 well as the tags listing, colors listing, and orientations listing that I
 think currently only appear when a search fails to return any results (as
 seen in the second screenshot).
