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.
