“Photograph: a picture painted by the sun without instruction in art.” Ambrose Bierce

They say a photo is worth a thousand words. I’ve always been a fan of looking at pictures from other places, from things I may never have the opportunity to see. I enjoy taking photos, especially the ones that are far from standard–that allow me to see my everyday from a different perspective. I not only believe that a photo is worth a thousand words, but also that a photo is worth a thousand worlds. Each image has the potential to capture things in a way someone has not before seen or understood. This inspires a thought, an understanding within such a person. An understanding that this world consists of far more than we are ever able to grasp in a lifetime. At least, that’s the case with me. A photo invokes thoughts and dreams of different places, experiences, people. A photo opens a door to a thousand different worlds, a million different lifetimes. The photos below inspired this particular post, and I highly recommend that you check them out.

Give yourself the chance to dream, to travel through a photo to the possibility and opportunity that this world holds. It’s beautiful, and it’s overwhelming. But, I like to think it’s worth it.
