Sorry it took me a bit to get back with you, but your correct. This did work. 
Why was the brackets necessary? I thought that was what the single quotes 
were for. I'm thinking the brackets join ['image'] and ['name'] otherwise the 
query views it as 2 seperate queries. Correct? or were the brackets use to 
group it all together, but seperate it from the outer quotes?
