We ran across this installment by Ron Terada on our trip to Vancouver, BC in July. I've mulled over the words in this picture many times in the last months. Because a picture is worth a thousand words, but what if no words fit the picture? Or what if there are too many words to fit the picture? Or what if I can't think of a caption that highlights all the ins and outs of that particular moment in less than a paragraph. I've always had a problem with being a little wordy, even when it comes to photos.
As I've scrolled through photos from the last decade trying to will myself to print some to hang on the bare walls of our home, I realized that there are too many snapshots of life that are worth more than a thousand words and the words don't fit the picture. Like this one:
