They say a picture is worth a thousand words.
I say a picture is a movie trailer,
of a trip down memory lane.
One look at a photo, of a time now past,
can unravel a strand of memory.
People in the photo can call to mind,
The story behind the image-
the context that’s missing.
A photo tells a story in the mind.
Captures a candid moment-
A look of pure joy-
A photo tells more than meets the eye.
Picturesque people, places, and things.
Parts of life otherwise unseen.
A stolen glance,
A shy smile,
A wistful look,
Capturing things in the moment,
That would otherwise be forgotten.
Time stands still in a photograph.
Those exact moments in time,
able to be preserved for forever.
When memory fails,
and recollection gets hazy,
Look back on the photographs.
Professional or Amateur.
Good lighting or Bad lighting.
Blurry lights or Sharp lines.
No matter the photo,
No matter the quality,
No matter the who, what, where, when, or why-
A story it will tell.
