Walt Disney once referred to pictures as the most universally understood language. And indeed, I believe that to be true. However, like all other languages, pictures, too, can be misunderstood or ignored. It takes practice and patience to learn this “language” and be able to glean all one can from a single picture. After all, it is a message of a thousand words we’re looking for in each one. 🙂
One such site is Teachinfourth’s blog where he often shares his photographs and also features the Weekly Kodachrome. These shots along with their titles and brief descriptions would be a great resource as you teach your students about finding meaning in pictures.
