Photography — The Universal Language?

Almost everyone loves to look at photos. We are drawn to faces, to something awesome, something beautiful, something simple… something different.

Surfing the web, looking at highway billboards, checking out Facebook, picking up a book or magazine, checking out peoples’ iphones…everyone and everywhere are pictures, pictures, pictures.

No matter where you are in the world or what your are doing, photos are the universal language, and you will understand that person even if they speak another language. For photography has become the number one universal language!

We are drawn to pictures. It is our way of recording our existence. We have been depicting people since the cave man. In Greek and Roman times, only those with high status and money had their pictures done. When photography came in existence, it was no longer relegated to the rich. Everyone could have them now! And more and more, there are billions of pictures circulating all around the globe for us to enjoy and comment upon. How delightful!

I had the pleasure of meeting Joan Heffler for an event where I was volunteering. First thing is first- her pictures and variety she shared was unbelievable! Part of what makes Joan unique is her ability to capture that special moment and with her creativity, makes all of those pictures come to life. Not only that, but she has a wonderful personality and talking with her was an absolute pleasure. It is nice to know that behind the lens, is a real person looking to make your day special. She was professional, friendly and courteous throughout and I will reccommend her to everyone I know looking for photography services 🙂
