“A picture tells a thousand words” for me today I came to witness the actual meaning of these words. I have never taken part in a photo exhibition and today it felt good to take part in one. I enjoyed explaining to people about my picture and explain my emotions towards the picture and the feelings that I felt when seeing particularly that part of the environment that is captured in the picture. I really came to witness those words when someone came to me and explained their point of view about the picture and I also understood his perspective and to be honest he said something I didn’t think about that’s when I realized that indeed a picture tells a thousand words. The other thing that stood out for me and the lesson I learnt was that through photography, we can actually raise awareness and use them to change the world. Because in my story I spoke about the issue of deforestation and pollution showing my worry towards that. Because of what I’ve learnt about photography I have happily added it in my toolkit as part of my resources. I am really glad I got to experience the exhibition. To me the exhibition is one of the best memories I have had in India and as a person that did not like to capture pictures I’m now inspired to take pictures and capture the moment. I am looking forward to taking more pictures!!
