“Every picture tells a story. But sometimes it's hard to know what story is actually being told.”

I’m sure you’ve heard the quote, “Every picture tells a story.”  But do you know the next line?  It reads, “But sometimes it’s hard to know what story is actually being told.”  I like that.  It reminds us that there is more to know.  And the more we know about the picture, i.e., background, context, characters, the more likely we are to interpret the story correctly.
