    story or history

    I have two pictures (or photos) in front of me. Each one has its own story. (Further in the text these pictures are compared and the circumstances under which they were taken are described).
    Which word should be used in the above sentence - story or history?
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Re: story or history

    I would be more likely to use story for the events leading up to the photo and history for what happened to it after it was taken, but wouldn't object to either.
