They say a picture is worth a thousand words.
A single photograph has the power to make you angry, sad, happy, laugh…pretty much any and every emotion possible. To see a person’s reaction to a photograph is a truly special thing. At Bags of Love, we love putting your photos, capturing your special moments onto our gorgeous, hand made products, to make them customised and personal to you. We love it even more when our customer’s email us and let us know their reactions to seeing the products, complete with photos!
With photos playing such an important part of our lives, we were blown away when our Editor found a couple of websites showcasing up to 60 of the most powerful photographs ever taken, that perfectly capture the human experience. Just by scrolling down the page, we were faced with images, which were so inspiring, sad, emotional, powerful, thought provoking, sweet, full of love and just…well…just amazing really!
These images speak not just a thousand words, but thousands. And we here at Bags of Love thought that we would share some of our favourites with you.
