The Power of Pictures

through the eye of my lense
the world is condensed
no detail escapes the frame

everything's seen
as what it had been
before time could change a thing

in a simple photograph
you can capture life, love, a laugh
with the click of one single button

and in a matter of years
it can produce tears
as a reminder of things that had been


Its not every day you find a weapon that is powerful enough to hold off the awesome might of time, but a photograph does just that. It can freeze time and capture it in an eight by ten developed within an hour.

And it doesn't just capture images; it captures emotions as well. You can feel what was happening in a photograph. Smiles, tears, laughs, sobs-- they are all victims of this powerful device known to us by a single name. The Camera.

The End
