A Picture Worth a Thousand Words

Image source:

The classic saying of "A Picture worth a thousand words". A good picture would instinctively inspire one to think of a thousand praises to the photographer who captured the picture. Take the one above as an example taken by Uzbek photographer Umida Akhmedova. It is one of her many pictures taken in her home country Uzbekistan. However, her works landed her in hot pot soup when local authorities feel that such image gives the country a bad image. Some of the pictures shown on BBC website does indeed make me think twice because it does carry a double meaning.

But what about the picture above? An image of innocence interpreted as poor? Some of us try very hard to see the good in everything while others can only see black. Well, as they say "beauty is in the eye of the beholder".

A little encouragement,
A small thought,
A simple sentence
To light up my day - Terima Kasih
