They say a picture is worth a thousand words. But what does that mean? A simple portrait may be nothing more than a person’s face. Or what about a landscape? Is there more to it than just a beautiful vista, captured for all time in a single image? Whoever came up with that well-known phrase must have realized that context and backstory can speak volumes. A simple shot of a woman feeding a child may be heartwarming, but when you learn she is a refugee from a war-torn region of the world and is trying to find some normalcy where none is available, your perspective changes.
In the gallery below you will see a series of images that, with the words added, turn a simple situation into something uplifting. Sometimes, it’s humans helping their fellow man. In other instances, the aide goes out to those of another species. We see celebrations and sorrow, respect, as well as the harsh realities of life today. In each instance, a sentence or two illustrates what that antique “thousand words” mantra means. While they capture a moment in time, they also represent a scene or sequence that demands more explanation. So grab some tissues and check out the collection. Your soul will thank you.
