And now the other side…

After this from yesterday, an overtly politically biased, but timely reminder that a snapshot is exactly that: merely an image of a single moment in time which might not be representative of the mood and feeling of the rest of that particular day.

Some interesting photographs here, which the writer feels were deliberately ignored by the “conservative news outlets”, who apparently “manufactured a controversy about an AFP photo of President Barack Obama shooting a selfie with Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt”.

My answer – while accepting that yes, it was a snapshot, a single moment (see above) – if you don’t want news outlets to make a meal out of the US President (and others) taking a selfie at a memorial ceremony, then maybe the US President (and others) shouldn’t be taking a selfie at a memorial ceremony. Don’t give them the ammunition in the first place.

Simples.
