A Picture is worth a 1,000 Words

Posted by Pratt Pande on 4/9/2014 to PersonalThrows
We are all perfectly aware of the saying that a picture is worth 1,000 words. While this has generally applied to paintings, it has also been applied to photographs and even a view that someone has in real time - like looking over the observation deck at the Empire State Building for example.

Can you look over a pleasant or disturbing scene and write 1,000 words about it? Sure you could - such a sight would be permanently burned into your mind to where you could write a very detailed description of a picture in your thought. But now let us take this a step further thanks to modern technology.

If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then what is it worth to have a picture on an item that has personal significance or utility? Can it be worth 5,000 words, describing the emotions in great detail of seeing a picture on a pillow or bed sheet or towel or a scarf?

OK, so maybe we don't usually think of a towel or a scarf in terms of a thousand words or more. But if you had a chance to place a favorite photo on a towel or scarf or pillow - something that you see and/or use often - would that add some value, sentimental or otherwise - to that "ordinary" item?
