Picture This

I got a lovely e-mail the other day from David Chin, a university student from Melbourne, Australia. He's launched a fascinating web project called A Picture's Worth which I think will appeal to a lot of folks. Sayeth the site,
Officially launched on the 1st of August 2003, A Picture's Worth is a personal project that aims to highlight the inspiration that can arise from a photograph and to capture it in the form of words which in turn can reveal the true beauty of a photograph. Ultimately, the project seeks to inspire and enhance captivating story writing and beautiful photography.

In line with the idea that 'a picture is worth a thousand words,' visitors are invited to share the memories, emotions or creative stories triggered by a photograph of personal significance. It is hoped that a new photo essay will be posted on the site daily.
A very nifty idea and, with photo blogging becoming a pretty big deal nowadays, one whose time has more than come. The few photos and essays in the gallery so far come from all around the world. Highly recommended.
