1,000 Words: The storm pictures

A picture is just a picture?

There’s a great example in the news today of how two “eyes” can see the same thing, and compose the picture in different ways. In this case, it’s a car hit by a falling power line/pole on Pilot Knob Road in Farmington this morning.

The picture on the left is from the Star Tribune. The picture on the right is from SunThisWeek.com.
