Thank you for sharing this.

Story telling through photography is a goal of many photographers. As you mentioned in your write up you see themes such as man’s insignificant size compared to nature. These act as interesting reminders to us with regards to our place in the world. It’s easily forgotten by many of us who live in large cities.

As photographers first start out the idea of incorporating a story into their photographs is often a daunting task. However, as you progress in photography you generally move past taking pictures of the “pretty” towards taking pictures of “stories”.

I find it interesting that a lot of the essays in this section deal with visual story telling and visual messages.
