Make yourself go back into the not so distant past. Try to remember the first poster you ever saw that made an impression on you. The one you can still picture on your mind up to now. What did it look like? What made the poster an unforgettable one? Is it the message of the words written or the picture on it? Or just simply the way it was done?
Or have you associated a picture with something or someone in any way? For example, in stumbling upon one shot, you remember your old room, your favorite chair, or your grandmother taking you in her lap and singing songs. Memories that when comes back when you think of the simplest thing.
Posters and pictures are the “feasts for the eyes”. We can see them everywhere, in streets, restaurants, malls, just about any place one can think of. People, being visual, tend to look first before taking in the details. If they like what they see, then they continue on exploring and taking other aspects. When we see something simple, we dismiss it as boring and do not bother to look for more. But if we see something that catches our eyes, we tend to look longer and appreciate what is in front of us.
If you compared things from the past and the things now, you would be amazed at the extent of chance that people are capable of. People now can appreciate posters that give out realistic colors and picture. Just by looking at them, one can feel as if what is in the poster is real. By using vibrant graphics, people can now have an initial idea what this places or persons look like. Needing no words, the pictures tell it all. No need for further explanation.
Pictures not only preserved time, it can also tell a story. Looking at pictures, you get to think of what is happening there during the time it was taken. Then you start making an order based from the series of events. You make an ending of your own, depending on the series of pictures that you have seen. All this a person can do, by simply looking at pictures.
People should consider how fortunate it had been that they were born in this time when everything is ultra-modern. Get a recent picture and compare it with your parents’. Changes are already recognizable in terms of texture, imagery and style. What started out as black and white has evolved into a wide range and variety of colors.
