I’ve been spending a lot of time immersed in the blog companion to Pictory Magazine, whose mission is to tell stories through pictures and captions. The result is a beautiful preservation not just of an image, but of a meaningful context, bringing you that much closer to the subject, photographer and experience.
Here’s the caption for the photo above:
“My 88-year old father-in-law took himself for his first manicure & pedicure last week. I noticed his hands looked different and can only imagine the faces of the ladies when he walked in. All 6’3” of him. He wears the apron to keep his clothes clean as he’s a widow and laundry is his responsibility, now. From the looks of it, the apron is working.”

    Totally true. Art is a way to show your soul, and this kind of blogging, one of the best ways to do it.
    By the way, I miss the Allison who used to write for his blog, what happened?
    Bye =)

      > I miss the Allison who used to write for his blog, what happened?

      For a while I thought that this post was Allison’s own words, but it is, in fact, a re-posting from someone else’s Tumblr.

        That’s right, and this is not the first time she does this.
        I’m not complaining about this posts, in fact they are great, but… I miss Allison’s posts. (Could be fixed by making a video response… 🙂 )

          At least we can trust that the content is being highlighted by Allison, so she is still sharing how she sees life and The World with us; a refreshing and thought-provoking ‘lens’ as ever.

            Yes, of course, I like the way she thinks – that’s why I started following this web not too long ago, and I still check every week – but I would really like to debate with her.
            Although I do like debating with the people who replies.

    I like this idea – the perfect combination of visual stimulation and a brief written amplification/explanation.
