1000 Words Worth


A picture is worth a thousand words” is an English language-idiom. It refers to the notion that a complex idea can be conveyed with just a single still image or that an image of a subject conveys its meaning or essence more effectively than a description does

This saying was invented by an advertising executive, Fred R. Barnard. To promote his agency’s ads he took out an ad in Printer’s Ink in 1921 with the headline “One Look Is Worth a Thousand Words” and attributed it to an ancient Japanese philosopher.

This series will examine that very thing – …

Some look at an image and see only the image itself, others look at the same image and see something else and others still can look at an image and see a completely different picture unfolding into a journey, a memory a story to be told. I have often pondered on this topic, a picture is worth a thousand words … but what words?

Each week l shall post a different image, and each week l would like you to tell me what you see …

Your image for this week is above  … what do you see?

  1. My first impression was beauty. The moss covered stone blocks against the colour of the sand and the green of the moss creeping up the wall is spectacular I think.

    1. Yes it is remarkably striking l think also. It is vibrant. There is an abundance of life in and around the rocks. The moss was and is this green, it was just so incredibly rich.

    1. Loved this Irish Pro a truly excellent read. It has been years since l visited myself that Bucket List beauty.

      I was in awe of its magnificence. I remember it was 1970 when my Father took the family there so nearly 50 years ago now, l was 7 years old.

      Excellent match up to the photo 🙂
