he cliché expression "a picture says more than a thousand words" is ancient wisdom and the fact remains that visuals are still an extremely strong way to communicate and tell stories. But lately I've also been wondering if we're really getting all those thousands of words and stories out of a single image when we're being handed SO much visual material on a daily basis?
Like who has time to analyze and ooze over every single pic they see? In fact, one study said the average time a person looks at a photo online is two tenth of a second.
Two tenths of a second! That's not a long time to captivate an audience and tell a story, and as somebody who is really into sharing photos it sounds pretty brutal *wipes sweat from forehead*...
