An Image With Meaning

Find an image from any source for which the meaning (impact, effect, impression, understanding, etc.) changes because of something you know or find out ABOUT it. Write about how the information that came from OUTSIDE the image changed its meaning for you.

You can divide your response into two parts: in the first part describe the initial impact or effect of the image on you when you first see it. In the second part, describe how what you find out about the image (from related text or even other images) changed its impact or effect. Keep in mind that titles, captions, stories, background information, parts of the image you don’t see, and even other images can all provide Context that affects the meaning.
