A single photograph can sometimes evoke a storm of feelings. On other occasions, it gives a fascinating glimpse of someone or something’s life story.
A whole number of things can have this effect. It might be that the photographer took the photo at exactly the right moment, or from exactly the right angle. It might be that the landscape or phenomenon in view is simply breathtaking in itself, no matter how you capture it. More often than not, though, a photograph takes on an astounding quality just by reminding us of all the wonderful and incredible things which are occurring every second around our world.
