1000 Words Worth 9#


Last weeks image 8 is of Highland Cattle in The Garlic Farm on the Isle of Wight. This particular beauty was real friendly and followed us around within his field for quite some time.


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. I see a moment captured in time. A snapshop of life. The flower grows from it’s small bulb beneath the suface, coddled in its soft earth. When the winter ice and cold diminishes, slowly the flower emerges and its beautiful bells are seen once more. Insects come and drink its nectar and then carry on its pollen to other flowers in other locations. The flowers wilt then die and return back to the earth for the cycle to recur again the following spring. Spring is the most brief of seasons, that small break between the end of winters icy hand and before summers loving embrace. That perfect moment when nature bursts out before the heat of summer drains it of its energy and vigour. Spring encapsulated in that most beautiful of flowers, the bluebell. The bluebell can also claim to be truly a british flower as the british isles is home to around 50% of the all the bluebells in the world. They are common in the british isle, but rare everywhere else.

    What a lovely picture. Thank you.
