|A Thousand Words|
Sometimes a photo just tells a story and we have all heard the phrase, a picture is worth a thousand words!
I captured this photo just before entering a tour bus in Costa Rica. We had enjoyed a river cruise thru the Rain Forest earlier in the day.
Over the past year I have come across it several times wanting to use it for a post in some capacity. This photo just speaks to me.
I have no idea who this gentleman is, however I can only imagine his lifestyle by observing this photograph.
I would say he is a man who works very hard and long hours to support his family. He is a man of modest means enjoying only the essentials of life. His work would be that of a farmer his hands rough and soiled, his skin tanned from the blistering sun. The animal by his side well groomed and fed. His shirt clean and pressed, he is loved and well cared for. A proud and honorable man, a kind man, rather quiet and soft spoken.
I would say he knows that his efforts are most appreciated and keep him going.
Well folks that's my interpretation of this photo and I could be all wrong but that's my imaginary story. Do you have anything to add? Can you only imagine his lifestyle?
Have a wonderful weekend!
