Picture Tells a Story
Remember this picture? This was my first Picture Story Challenge Post. At that time, I called it Story Photo Contest, which eventually evolved into a regular category called, Picture Story.
This post was published on March 30, 2009. The first line of this post was “They say a picture tells a thousand stories.”
I believe this. The Picture Story posts evolved from this belief that others would also see the “thousand stories” possible in a photograph.
Evita, photographer and author of Evolving Scenes was the first blogger to prove to me that photographs can be seen as something more than just a picture.
She once told me, “It is fun too to see how others see the world, and things. It never ceases to amaze me how two or more people looking at the same thing can see things so differently!”
I think these are wise words. They capture perfectly the reason why I do the Picture Story Challenges. I want to invite people who visit to look beyond the object in the picture and see something special.
I am also lucky to have some very imaginative readers. The Picture Story posts have always generated creative comments that never fail to surprise and delight me.

I loved all the comments for last week’s Picture Story Post, Graffiti Artists in Switzerland. However, a special congratulations goes to the people who undertook Challenge Two from this post.
