Every Picture Tells a Story – by Rod Stewart.
In thinking about the song — I ask the question…does it really?
I believe some photos/images are simply admired for their beauty – say a close-up photo of a particularly beautiful flower after the rain, a magnificent landscape or the perfect light on a sand dune. These images can certainly hold a viewers attention, bringing to the eye details not seen before or give a new perspective on something quite familiar. Mat it and frame it and it can compliment and bring beauty to a room. Pictures that tell a story can spark curiosity and different stories can be conjured by each viewer.
Many stories unfold in front of each of us everyday. Some of us are lucky enough to have a camera handy and are able to capture it so that we may share it with you. The photographer knows the story – or at least what was real for them when they took the picture. You know a different story. We want to hear the story what you hear in whichever image, or images, you choose. Please take the time to write it here and share it with us. Sometimes a photo may be edited to add drama or emotion.
