The Power of a Photo

The power of a photo… It says what words cannot.

Sometimes I over explain myself. Sometimes I take and post photos here for the sake of my project. Sometimes, I wonder why I do this.

Sometimes, I remember that in my small way, I have the power to affect change. I see photos that other photographers have taken and know that I have the power to do what they do. To raise awareness, to call people to action, to pull on the heartstrings, to capture memories.

To me, that’s what photography is.

I found some websites with some very powerful images and put them here for you to see. Enjoy!

Happy Thursday!
