1000 Words Worth 11#


Last time our image 10  was taken on the Garlic Farm in the Isle of Wight.  In the wooded area that surrounded the actual farm itself. Whilst l don’t think the cap studded tree was specific to the area behind it, it had a somewhat surreal aspect to it. Behind this tree was a small graveyard dedicated to family pets.

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?
