My first port of call in the morning is to check my email, next I read USA Today on my Ipad.
Each day they have a selection of amazing photos and they are the first things I check. I generally share each photo and it’s title with Keith as we have breakfast.
I get inspired by the way the photo tells a story. Yesterday there was a small boy, his face twisted in fright as he was threatened by a soldier wielding a baton.
I guess you would say that’s not inspiring… but the visual tells me much more than if I was to read the story… plain words on a page, interpreted by my brain, but in a photograph there is color, poignancy, pathos and in this one particularly, anger and helplessness on my part.
I don’t know that words can evoke those feelings.
Have a look for yourself… the photo after this one is of the Pope…. I looked at it for ages. It shows his back as he walks away, but the composition is wonderful.
This is a photo I took in Winnipeg last week, It tells me a story.. I love the action of the young men just hanging on the fence.
This is what they were watching.!!!
It tells a story.
