We’ve all heard the saying “A picture is worth a thousand words”. But why?

As a writer, I know it can take lots of words to describe just one picture, but most famous quotes aren’t that literal.

A picture can say something in a way nothing else can. A skilled artist can make colors speak and send a message to every viewer. But that’s a choice.

What’s a picture worth if not a thousand word? What’s the point?

Now, there’s nothing wrong with a selfie or a photo about a cool event you just went to. Those are memories you will want to keep. But memories say a lot, don’t they?

Let everything you do speak. Say something. Not everything you post has to be some well thought-out point of life that will change someone’s perspective, but not everything you post should be fun selfies or life events either. Let your pictures say something.

The above quote is from Britt Nicole’s song “No Filter”
