They say a “picture is worth a thousand words” and when you add a story and post it online it is absolutely priceless. Telling the story brings even more life into the picture. The story can tell what happened right before or after the picture was taken. It could also explain the “why” behind the picture. Why is the boy sitting there with a bowl of spaghetti on his head? Did the photographer just step in to capture the action or was the scene staged? Did he put the spaghetti on his head or was it his sister whose face we see laughing in the background? The story is the difference between a picture being given a quick glance and an “aw” and really having an impact on the viewer.
