Idea: picture is worth a thousand words

A picture, I'd say it's true, is worth a thousand words. But, today I'm in search of just a few of those words that might describe my imagery precisely and simply. I'm looking for the right words to use when I am talking about my work to someone who has never seen it before.

Please hit the comment button below and tell me the first three or three thousand words that come to you when you see these images.

Thank you! - Serena

this is what i wrote:

your photos are...
* natural, spontaneous, relaxed, open, genuine, sincere
* insightful, intuitive, revealing
* fun/funky/offbeat, unconventional
* absorbing, intriguing, layered

to me, this is less documentary photography (which is a record of the event), than it is -observational- photography (which is a record of the hidden moments, the unseen moments). you look where others don't.

Your photographs are timeless, candid, and flawlessly executed. They are exquisitely composed and have a tangable energy that pulls the viewer into another world.

Gretchin, Kyle and Ryan - I love what you came through with. Always hoping that the images I create are conveying what you saw, yet I never know for sure what others see in my work. Thank you so much for taking a moment to write it down for me!
