If a picture is worth a thousand words, is that a metered transaction?
In exchange for any old photo, should we expect, in return, the appropriate number of words?
Should we count every very and like?
Could I get two selfies and a haiku as change, for a landscape?
Does the value depreciate? If you hear, “Dogs playing poker,” do you have that image in mind? Is there need to detail the placement of the chips, the color of the table. Has familiarity reduced the painting’s value to three words?
Then this notion probably isn’t worth one-tenth of a photograph?
