A Picture is Worth a Thousand Sounds

They say a picture is worth a thousand words but no one ever says how a picture is worth a thousand sounds. I am here to prove to you that this should very well be just as popular of a saying.

The following images show that a picture is capable of encouraging the viewer to imagine the sounds associated with the moment captured. As you look through these photos, be sure to envision the potential sounds that could possibly be generated in these moments and I can promise you there won’t only be one.

For one moment in time, there lives a thousand possibilities for potential noise.
