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!
1. Bummer Cat
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!
