They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. However, the kind of pictures which leave you utterly lost for words, usually require some key ingredients. A camera or smart phone would be a basic starting point. A good photographer, with a sense of composition, aesthetics and some technical knowledge would also be extremely helpful. A photogenic subject and imposing setting can do no harm. But for the kind of photos which really leave the audience astounded, a sense of timing is a key requirement. Serendipity and being in the right place at the right time, then brings it all together. We’ve managed to track down 15 photos which bring together these ingredients and which are guaranteed to leave you gobsmacked!
Known anyone who’s ever shared a place with a feline (because certainly no human can own a cat – it’s quite possibly the other way round, actually!)? Well they are sure to tell you that cats just love to get in everyone’s business. The old adage, curiosity got the cat, has withstood the test of time for a reason! Want to be acknowledged and revered (possibly). They want to make friends and own their humans and pretty much anyone they get into contact with. And in the cat world, social interaction starts off with a good butt sniff. And the wholly unconnected guy on TV has the exact reaction we get when an oblivious cat sidles up to an unsuspecting human to start off the interactions!
Ah selfies – the social media phenomenon which has swept the internet by storm. All you need is the average smartphone, which comes complete with a basic digital camera and possibly a selfie stick, and you’re good to go! We all have that one friend who goes to great lengths to get the perfect selfie in a bid to gain more likes and boost her ego. And according to the American Psychiatric Association there is such a mental disorder as an addiction to selfies. This can be particularly highlighted by the kind of selfies which bring together a need for social approval, vanity and recklessness. Here are the top 10 most dangerous selfies, surfing the net.
Elevating your ego to new heights
This is the point at exactly which an inflated sense of self meets senselessness! Vanity triumphs at the expense of basic self-preservation. Perched up high at the top of Brazil’s statue of Jesus, this guy must be very confident that someone, up there high above the clouds (right where he is taking this selfie from), loves him. Protected by the angels, this fellow just grins into the sunlight, carefully angling his digital camera to get the maximum effect of the staggering height of the statue.

Ah, prom time. That legendary socially-uncomfortable gathering for those high school students who are not on the cheerleading or football teams! This is a hallmark event in every teen’s life and therefore they want to look red-carpet ready in a bid to get nominated Prom Queen and King. Whereas up until a few years ago, parents’ proud photographs of their offspring and mandatory date would suffice, the increasing pressure to keep up with the Kardashians means that kids today are going through all kinds of lengths to impress. And here are some seriously funny fails!
We’re not sure whether she’s going for the Angelina Jolie assassin look in Mr & Mrs Smith or the actress’ look on the Oscars red carpet in 2012. Perhaps she’s heading for a wild night in Vegas.

Billions of dollars are spent on movies every year, all in the name of entertainment and the box office profits that follow. But in less than a century, costs have soared, not only because of inflation, but also because of the expense of footing the bills for hugely improved effects. In 1959, the epic historical drama, Ben-Hur, that starred Charlton Heston, was reputed to have the largest budget of all time. The movie took about eight months to make, on a budget of $15.175 million. In addition to around 10,000 extras, 200 camels and 2,500 horses featured in the film. Extraordinarily for that time, the famous sea battle was filmed with miniatures in an enormous tank in California. Today movies with budgets over $200 million have become the norm, one of the first being the epic Titanic that cost $200 million in 1997.

Made in 2013, the American Western The Lone Ranger cost an estimated $225 million. A Walt Disney Pictures movie (as several in this list are), it was, ironically, plagued with budgetary concerns which at one stage in the production of the movie led to its temporary cancellation. The movie got itself two not very fulfilling Academy Award nominations, one for Best Makeup and Hairstyling, and the other for Best Visual Effects. It also managed to make back what it cost to make, though with not that much profit, grossing around $260 million.

We may not all be conscious of brands, but there is absolutely no doubt that the world’s most popular brands are moneymakers, and often the backbone of the company that makes the brand.

Furthermore some brands enjoy popularity for longer than others, never seeming to fall out of favor with the buying public. This top ten list is ranked by the current brand value of each.

There is no doubt that Facebook leads the social media brands, not just in terms of popularity, but also in terms of its monetary brand value that is currently $36.5 billion. Headquartered in California, it was founded by Mark Zuckerberg and friends in 2004 touting a mission statement that said it aimed to help people “stay connected with their friends and family.” Initially entirely free, (which undoubtedly pushed the company into the 10 most popular brands list), Facebook now offers paid advertising.
