It’s often been said that “a picture is worth a thousand words.” Whoever first uttered these words obviously did so before the preponderance of cell phone images and social network photo sharing. I’m a bit old school when it comes to photography. I relish capturing a moment in time and returning to it again and again, discovering new details and observations.
Last weekend, I took this sunset photo along the Currituck Sound in Outer Banks of North Carolina in the town of Duck. During the summer months, Duck’s population explodes with vacationers, but throughout the spring and fall, the place returns back into a sleepy coastal town. As we walked along the boardwalk, the stillness along the water was absolutely deafening. God’s creation was magnified in that moment. Today, I wanted to share a little of that serenity with you.
Do you ever stop and consider the stories behind photos? What types of images speak to you?
By the way, I’ve added this image to my Photography Shop. There you will find a collection of my work, available for purchase on high quality wall canvases. I have two hanging in my office at work. Recently a coworker commented that they were so beautiful that they looked like oil paintings. These make beautiful additions to any home or office.
