The Power of simbolism

How is it that in certain context everything is a symbol... maybe it is because in those very situations we are looking for things to have more meaning. We project our own thoughts to what we see and in definitive everything becomes a symbol. I hear a teenager swear or talk loudly on his cell and suddenly he bears the cross of the failure of the education system and patental guidance...

The same goes with this picture, you first look at it and it seems pretty at best but if I tell you it was taken in Jordan and that the river you see is the jordan river, suddenly the barbwire becomes a symbol of the water conflict and every element of it takes new meaning... do we give to much simbolic power to the images we see?
