Have you ever looked at a photograph and realized that it was telling you a story about someone’s life? Sometimes, pictures can ‘transmit’ very strong feelings, touching your soul and affecting your state of mind. When you look at them you feel a quiver inside: this one made you smile, the other makes you choke back tears.
