There seems to be some confusion about the phrase, “A picture’s worth a thousand words.” What does it mean? It means you can use a picture instead of a lot of words. What it doesn’t mean is that a picture requires a lot of words for people to understand it. Unless the photo is being used as illustration, it doesn’t matter where or when the picture was taken or what the photographer was thinking or how the photographer was feeling when he took the photo. The point is, it’s a photograph. The photographer looked at the contact sheet and responded to the photo, so he shared it with the world.

What should you do when you look at the photo? First, feel. Then ask yourself why you feel. The answer may be in the photo, or it may be in your experience. This is, of course, simplified. If you have something to add or ask, please do.
