Is a picture really worth a thousand words?
That’s a strange question to ponder in the middle of two word-producing endeavors, National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), with a goal of 50,000 words of a novel written by November 30th, and National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo), with a goal of posting every day.
I was out for an errand/walk with my kids one recent night. We headed home as dusk fell. Needing to cross a busy avenue, we waited for the light. Suddenly, I saw an awesome pair of boots crossing the road ahead of us – high heels, but they looked manageable. What to do? I quickly retrieved my phone/camera from my pocket to snap a shot of the boots so I could go hunting the next day.
But the boot-wearing lass was on the move. Hence, the many photos.
For me, the photos show a romance with a happy ending. For her. A happy ending for her. I’m still looking for the boots.
Here are the photos. Are the five, taken as a unit, worth 5 X 1,000 words, 5,000 words?
