Visual Dictionary Looks At Words Through Photography

We've all heard that a picture is worth about a thousands worlds, but it was Ansel Adams who once said, "When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence." It's a charming thought that is fortuitous captured in Visual Dictionary's collection of images of words in the real world.

The site features a user-submitted catalog of signage, graffiti, advertising, tattoos - or any other word and image combos. The effort began in 2006 and now includes more than 5,000 images of more than 3,000 words. Users continue to submit images and the creators claim they are working on new innovative ways to display the images.

You can contribute your images of signs and words, or just browse through the collection in awe.
