I do like words. But sometimes, more can be spoken without them...with a visual, an image. It's one of the many reasons I love photography. It doesn't need words. It doesn't need to be explained. It can be as simple as evoking the power of an emotion. Which often lasts longer and is more powerful than the written word. Two different forms of communication. Images and visuals are probably the more natural of the two. They came first. After all....you probably picked up a crayon before you picked up a book to read.
"You can be amazing, you can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug.
You can be the outcast, or be the backlash of somebody's lack of love.
Or you can start speaking up, nothing's gonna hurt you the way that words do...
...but I wonder what would happen if you
Say what you wanna say, and let the words fall out.
Honestly, I wanna see you be brave."

I will be posting more photos later in the week of visual arts filled Brick Lane, in East London.
In the spirit of it being January 12th and I STILL have the vast majority of my Christmas decorations up...next week's Song-ography title is...
"The Lazy Song"...hmmmmm...I think I should still be able to stop by everyone's blogs to pay a visit while laying around on my couch. Hope I don't strain myself tho.
