One deeply etched memory I have of my childhood is looking through the amazing pictures found in Life Magazine while waiting for the doctor or dentist. I remember as a small child how big the magazine felt in my hands and how powerful the photos were to me. The phrase 'a picture is worth a thousand words' must have been born out of this magazine.
Today, we don't have to wait for a visit to the doctor or dentist to experience this kind of power. Instead, click to some of these sites that I have listed for you. I don't agree with and am sickened by some of the photos, but it depicts real life and they are powerful. And the photos do tell a story.

One interesting and common trait of many of the best photos you see is that they are in black and white. Hmmm...keep that in mind the next time you are editing some of your own photos.
