The number worth remembering is Simple Number One.
Gives all you need to know.
How come? This come!
First comes the text. We call it so because it sticks. It adds the three, the four, the five.
Second there comes context. That which always tags along. It adds the six, the seven and the eight.
Three gives you Width, which stretches in horizons. Fourth gives Height. It builds the ups and downs. Five is in there too, it simply gives you Depth.
Six gives Present, seven Past and eight points to the Future. Thereby crumbles other’s words, who say that photographs are mostly about death. Not so in real life.
Nine is You, the one who hold it all together.
Now, turn it upside down and nine transforms to six. The graphics are the same. Two in kind makes only one, and that is reason good enough. So very neat and simple.
And this I told you from the start, the only thing you need to know, is Simple Number One.
