paint a picture

1 picture speaks 1000 words but when 1000 pictures are posted, they really only speak 1 word each.

I live a couple blocks north of Dundas Square and I am always amazed by how many people walk up and down the streets with a $1000 camera around their neck. The number of professional photographers is rapidly increasing!

Someone said, “less is more” and when it comes to pictures, I would have to agree. Before you press on, press off. Even though it is digital, you still have to try. Paint a picture. If you go on a 7-day trip, see if you can capture it with 1 picture. Why? Because 1 picture speaks 1000 words…
