Interesting Photo of the Day: Self Portrait Moment

There are some moments in life that last only a second, and occasionally such a moment is captured by someone with a camera. This moment shows a girl taking a photo of herself with her phone amongst a crowd of people at a concert. What makes this image so interesting is that everyone else in the photo is almost too dark to see, but the girl is perfectly exposed and right in the center of the frame. It’s just perfect enough to look like it was planned, and yet it was just a lucky shot in the dark (not retouched in any way):

    Wow! What an cool shot! How sad that our society is like that- more focused on themselves than anyone else! “Center of her world” is very appropriate.
