Not the whole story
While this photo may tell a story, it seems to also ask “What led up to this?” or “What happened next?” I will never know the whole story of this man I spotted at the end of a trail leading to a Pacific Ocean outlook.
Though a picture may tell a story (of a thousand words) . . . we only know part of it.
“Who knows? We shall see” is a phrase repeated in an old story (told countless ways) to illustrate how every event is part of a larger whole.
