Photographic Dictionary

Sometimes I see something and think, "Wow. Wish I'd have thought of that first." Check out a very clever project entitled The Photographic Dictionary created by Lindley Warren. It is dedicated to defining words through the literal, figurative, and personal meanings found in each photograph on the site.

Below you will find tentative and kiss.
