    Actually it might have something to do with how I take pics right?
    just saying what's more silently honest then a mirror?

    Can you guess what this is? It's supposed to symbolize what Silently Honest isn't.

    It just struck me - that each one of these pictures is a metaphor.

    It's just that they are visual metaphors.

    So I am wondering - why are we comfortable with visual metaphors but uncomfortable with written metaphors?

    could be because it's in a thread specifically designed for it

    I'm not uncomfortable with written metaphors. Are most people?

    Depending on the subject, I might find it more difficult to understand, but that doesn't make me uncomfortable with it.

    Maybe it's less direct. Open to more interpretation.

    Yeah, a metaphor is a comparison of relationships like -

    As A is to B, so C is to D.

    And a written metaphor is usually shortened so that the structure is invisible, while a visual metaphor is plain to see.
