listen to a photograph

A photograph can evoke many emotions - anger, sorrow, lust, love, tranquility - but only if the viewer is willing and able to listen to what the photographer is trying to say with his camera. It takes input from both the viewer and the photographer to determine the tone; and each person will translate the photographer's voice differently because they bring their own life experiences to the image.

As a photographer, I should choose my photo-words carefully; as a viewer, I must become a good listener.
