We’ve all heard the saying “A picture is worth a thousand words.”, so let’s talk about that for a second. (Don’t worry – I’ll keep it under a thousand!)
Personally, I could talk about a single photograph for days, and I definitely find articles with images to be more engaging and powerful. What I want to talk about though is this:
Is a thousand words all that a picture is worth?
For me the answer is – absolutely not! I believe a photo can be worth SO much more than that.
Words are powerful. But a photograph…
A photograph can make you feel.
It can render you speechless.
A photo is a single moment.
A freeze-frame of your life.
A photograph is forever.
It is art and soul.
It is a memory.
Sometimes it’s all you have left.
A picture is priceless.
So invest in photographs as much as you possibly can, and when you can’t, remember to take your own snapshots often.
Because you will never regret it.
That’s why I’m a photographer, and I love every second of it.
