A Batch of Pretty Little Photos

Standard

I have never once posted a photo on this blog. Why? Because I believe that my words satisfy the human need for imagery. Personally, I think words far better describe a scene than a picture ever will. A picture leaves so much unknown. Why is this woman crying? Or who is this child? Or was this sunrise or sunset? Words are precise, and when used correctly, can give such a vivid emotion to the scene described, no picture can compare. Words leave only what is desired to the unknown, and that may be justified by the readers’ assumed imaginations.

And yet, lately I’ve been getting more and more into pictures. I’m not a photographer by any stretch of the imagination. But when I get lucky enough to catch something beautiful, I feel the want to share it.

So I figure I can share it here, if it matches the emotion described in the poetry I post. In that light, I shall begin to post photos if only for my own use to keep me using my camera and improving. I won’t post it in everything. Just where it is needed.

About Mattie J.

My name is Mattie J. Hamilton, and I am seventeen years old. I live in a cute little house in the country in Southern Indiana, and have lived there my entire life. I self-published two books of poetry a few years ago, but I much prefer writing fiction of poetry, journalism, or any other sort of writing. I'm somewhat new to the blogging world, and I may come off as a bit of an ameteur, but hey, I am an ameteur. Proud of it. After all, I'm just a kid, and I have plenty of time to learn.
