This is a poster that I just recently bought for my room- I was instantly attracted to both the image and the quote, and it really affected me in a way that I can’t explain. But in order to fully appreciate this poster, you have to be able to step back and read the image without any accompanying text according to Helmers in Chapter 2. He states that we should discover what message the illustrator was trying to convey because sometimes text and images work independently even though they may be joined. This photograph was taken (I assume) standing at the shoreline, looking out into the distance to capture the boats sailing on by to the left. There are two questions to answer just from looking at the image alone: Where are the boats sailing from, and where are they sailing to? I think having these questions only enhances the quote even more.
