This week’s photo is almost guaranteed to grab the unsuspecting viewer by the heart. Here’s what we think. What comes to your mind?
Susan says: “Oh, dear. This is a heart breaker. Photos like this one (and others of babies, kittens, bunnies and ducklings) instantly tap into the emotions. The added zing of this particular photo are the pup’s pleading eyes and the dirty “adopt me” vest. It is said on the internet (totally reliable, of course) that wine bottle labels with photos of dogs on them outsell all others. Use these sorts of photos judiciously and when you absolutely need to go for the heart strings. And, please, will somebody take him home! ”
Lucia says, “For me, this is a photo of two stories and many questions. The obvious one is of the dog. What is her story? Why did she need rescuing? The other story is of Enzo’s Acres, which seems to be a private rescue organization. What’s their story? Why did they start a rescue operation? I’m moved by both stories: the dog’s because of her need and Enzo’s Acre for coming to her rescue. The many layers in a photo like this can add thought-provoking elements to your presentation. I’d like to add that I agree with Susan. This photo is a real emotion grabber. And the biggest question is: Did Enzo’s Acres find the dog a home? Not answering the question is a powerful thing. It keeps the story alive in you audiences’ minds long after your presentation is over.”
