Photography is an art of observation. It has little to do with what you see and more to do with what you perceive of what you see. It is a common myth that photography captures the reality. On the contrary, photography is a form of expression. The photographer tells his story through his photos.
Among the many ways of expressing, photography definitely tops them all. If caught right, the visuals have such a power that they can let you imagine yourself in the scene for that moment. Looking at a beautiful picture of the sea, you can smell salt. Seeing an emotional image, you start crying. Such is the power of photography.
Here are five such images that are so powerful and so musical of sorts that you will surely want to dance!
