Weekly Photo Challenge: Letters

20111207-napa_04-DSC_1646How do we communicate in a visual way? I was reading a book on photography recently and the author made the point that we of the modern era communicate less with graphic images then we did in ancient times. We first communicated through signs and simple images, there were no letters and words. Then game graphic symbols and letters. Only a few could read so pictures and paintings were still used to communicate to “the masses” until education became a priority for all. Letters and numbers still work but icons, logos, symbols, Instagram, SnapChat – graphic communications are making a comeback. Let’s give whatever works a thumbs up. This photo was taken at the Oxbow Public Market, Napa, California.
