Is a picture worth 1,000 words? Likely it’s worth much more. As in a 400 page novel, a picture has a foreground, or preface, that gains your attention and pulls you into the frame of the picture. It may contain multiple subjects, each with their own role to play. There are transitions from the foreground to the background that do not steal from the subjects, but rather provide cohesion. Finally, the background adds mystery and interest. This photo of the Florida Intercoastal, taken last winter with an iPhone in one hand and glass of wine in the other, has all these and more.
