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.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.
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.
