While watching the news this morning there was a report about a weight-lifting Mum showing off her six pack and causing a firestorm. She did it by posting a photo with a caption on Instagram. It offended some and got support from others. It also made me think about a beautiful and thought-provoking song Try by Colbie Caillat.
To me the interesting thing about this story – it all happened because of a photograph.
Images tell a story like nothing else can. It’s why photography is fascinating and captivating.
I recently posted a floral photograph on my Facebook page. It was not an image I had thought much of but it got a significant response from my friends. We don’t always know what resonates with people in the art we produce but it’s great to know when a connection has been made.
What are you photographing today?
