These guys must be listening to an amazing story…
Susan says, “Who knew that turtles could be as mesmerized by a great story as we humans. Here we have proof. The seating arrangement is awkward, the neck strain must be palpable, but no one is leaving. That is the true power of story. This is what you want to put before your audience: a story that will keep them glued to you. Without a story you are just outlining a plan, detailing a process, exploring a concept. No turtle worth her salt would stick around for that, am I right?”
Lucia says, “Here we have a story within a story. My first impression of this scene was very literal – three turtles on a log. The configuration of the turtles and the reflections in the water made a nice composition. To me it looked as if the late arrivals were hoping for a seat on the log, but wondering how to get by the one already there. But I had a nice chuckle over Susan’s description of the storytelling turtle and the mesmerized audience of two. I do like her story much better. It goes to show, present a photo and ask people what they think. Who knows what they’ll see and what discussion will follow.”
