1000 Words Worth 10#


Last weeks image 9 was taken not far from where l live in a rather appropriately named ‘Bluebell Wood’, here in eastern Kent. Tis a shame, that these flowers do not stay longer in bloom, for they truly are lovely.

Now what do you make of this image?


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. What type of tree is that Rory? that has such soft wood to imprint bottle caps in it’s trunk? The terrific thing is that tree will grow over those cancers… we all can heal ourselves. Each thought imprinted in our head… grow new thoughts to cover the negative. Right? j💜🕊

    1. Morning Jeanne,

      A good question, l am not sure what the tree type is. Most of the trees in this location were pine, but this small neck of the woods wasn’t – this particular tree served a purpose for the site directly behind it.

      But l agree with everything you have written 🙂

      1. Ok. Thanks. And yes… it is sunny ☀️ and birds are chirping. Good day to you too! 🙂🎶🎶
