What Story Do We Tell?

with 8 comments

Tells of a Season

The leaves on a tree suggest which of the four season we are in. A morning sunrise against the calm lake and mountains for backgrorund tell of calm and peace. The thunderhead and lightening on the distant praire tell of a coming storm. Trees coverd in new snow lining a meadow tell of the quiet of winter. The vendors and buyers in an open market bartering over price tell us in silence of the busy streets. The wide reciever reaching with out stretched hands for the football in the back of the end zone. The woman sitting alone on a park bench. The homeless person. The high school graduation.

What story do our images tell?

  1. That’s part of the beauty of us as photographers. We select which and how we tell these stories It’s powerful when you think of it that way. 🙂

    • I agree on that!! There are times our images speak in silence but we still sit in awe and listen.

  2. Interesting blog. I like the exploratory, contemplative, question-asking approach. Good way to differentiate what you are doing.

    • Thanks, Alan, for stopping by and leaving a comment. I made a quick venture to your blog and will follow along. This evening I am in a hotel room in Manchester, NH, so not too far from you. When I fly out in the morning, I will give you a wave. 🙂

      Wow, Manchester, NH, you’re practically next door. That you for the wave, and have a safe flight. Your blog is great, thank you.
