Amazing 'Selfies'

Author: Hugh Bollinger/Wednesday, April 9, 2014/Categories: Uncategorized

"Selfies", those online photos of someone taken of themselves, took on a larger meaning with the famous group shot taken by Ellen DeGeneres at the Academy Awards. The image was the most re-posted photo ever. Riled Up friend and professional photography contributor, Chris Holly, informed us of another selfie which seems even more remarkable than the gathered awards ceremony talent.

A young American musician and actor, Cameron Ernst, won a travel award to Australia and was hosted in Canberra, the capital, by Holly. While there, an opportunity developed to encounter a cheetah at the local zoo. A remarkable selfie resulted and became an emblem for the tourist board and adventure travel award Ernst had won.

For anyone thinking that the photo is some sort of composite, here's the view as seen by Ernst's host in Canberra:

Selfies brought a group of actors together for a global audience and they might bring new meaning to wildlife photography and provide a different of human and animal interaction also.
