Look at her eyes!

Nepal. Yes, this beauty is from the land of Nepal. Her green eyes have captured the attention of the whole world. This landlocked neighbor of India is home to the highest mountain peak of the world, the Mount Everest. Not impossible, but there are bleak chances that people from Nepal or China will have green eyes.

Upside-down. Wowww

A kid at the soon to breakout rally in Georgia. Todd Robertson, the photographer of this amazing capture looked for something different and unlike others of his profession took this photo of a child who went up to the African American officer and touches his shield. Superb timing Todd, I must say. He captured this photo just before the kid’s mother could snatch him away. Soon to become one of the famous photos in America.

Burst of Joy.

Perfect time of capture of the photographer Slava Veder. He has captured the reunion of Lt. Colonial Robert Stirm with his family after returning from captivity, from the America and Vietnam War, in 1973. This photo has won the Pulitzer Award for showing the raw human emotion. But, it failed to show the separation of Robert and his wife. Thus, the photograph is not as happy as it seems to the world.

Heartfelt tribute.

This German model’s killer looks are a big distraction for all of us. She is Jeneil Williams, who is a fitness freak and always wanted to become a model. She has become famous for her looks and now works with clients like H&M and Vogue. Her boldness since her childhood when she walked into the Pulse Headquarters, won her the break and success.

Female soldier?

Yes, you are right. She is from Iraq. Scotty the lucky photographer has managed to capture this rare shot when a young girl went to meet her out of curiosity. It’s bewildering to see a female doing the job of a soldier. The brave is also not wearing the helmet because she wanted to build trust among the villagers. Courageous!

She is soo cute.

Kindness personified. This is a 1952 picture where this sergeant Frankl Praytor feeds a kitten with the medicine dropper and watered down canned milk, during the Korean War. This still is titled as The Marine and The Kitten. *Empathy*

What do you think these monks are doing? Praying?

gea3z65iinwd65wrxumk

It is a misconception that 1,00,000 monks are praying together for world peace in this photo. According to the Foreign Policy magazine this photo is of a mass celebration in Thailand. Thus, the photographer, Luke Duggleby has rightly said “a photograph must always be accompanied by an explanation, and if that explanation is incorrect, misleading or a total lie then the image becomes something that it’s not. With social media it is possible to access so many people very quickly that could be a very dangerous thing.”

Stop him!

Le Petit Parisien is the name of this still taken in 1952 by Willy Ronis. This photo says that the boy may have stolen the bread from a bakery and is running. But, it is not so in reality. He happily carries that bread which he bought with his grandmother after standing in a long queue. He is so adorable.

She’s smoking?

But there is no smoke to be seen. Huh, it’s a smoke candy. Sally Mann captured this photo in 1989. Can you recall your childhood days when you used to smoke these candies in order to imitate your elders? These candies were more for than for taste, ever! But this little girl’s look is just mind-blowing.

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA)

This picture shows a man who gladly shows his AA chip to the camera. AA was founded in 1935 by Bob Wilson and Bob Smith to free people from the vices of alcohol addiction. It is still active today to sober up the world. The chip is a yardstick of how far the alcoholics have come from their addiction. Long way to go AA.

Music of love

This photo has captured humanity in the best possible form. Titled as the Music of Love, this shot displays a man playing a bamboo flute to a disabled child. And this child is not the man’s son. Thus all he wanted to do was to make the boy happy despite his disability. It was taken in 2010 in the Tenganan village of Bali by Ario Wibisono.

Opposites together!

An albino and his cousin snuggle together. Two worlds in the same bed. An extremely rare capture, I must say. Albinism is calculated to occur in 1 in 17,000. It is a condition in which there is no pigmentation in the skin. This is dangerous as the person suffering may develop skin burns and is susceptible to skin cancer.

Free falling. Someone please save him.
