No Words Required

After having seen Steve McCurry's exhibit today, I ended up realizing that even if words matter, no writing can convey emotion as a photograph does. Truly, I cannot describe the world I saw through his camera lens. I could attempt, but photography is untranslatable. Even the best writer cannot but bow to an art that can capture the world  with such vivid realism.


  1. Thank you, Principessa, for underscoring the impact of a face behind a motive - or a joy within the eyes. I'll have a help of McCurry with some really good rice, LOL... Though words may carry us over distant mountains it is the eye that aids us in our quest to leap over the abyss right in front of us! Grazie, always. - Frederic "Fred" Kahler, Apalachicola, Florida
