Selfies Can Be Amazing

Selfies, the online personal photos which Ellen DeGeneres used so effectively with the famous actors at the Academy Awards ceremony, can often be amazing. Her selfie was the most re-posted ever. Riled Up contributor and professional photographer, Chris Holly, shared another selfie that seems even more remarkable than the talent gathered at an awards event.

A young American musician and actor, Cameron Ernst, won a award to visit Australia. He was hosted in the capital, Canberra, by Holly. While there, an encounter developed with the local cheetah at the zoo. A remarkable selfie resulted. It became an emblem for the Canbera tourist board and the adventure travel award Ernst had won. Anyone thinking the photo is a photoshopped composite, here's the view as seen by Ernst's host.

Selfies brought actors together and was shared with a global audience. Perhaps they can also bring new meaning to wildlife photography and provide a different perspective on human and animal interactions. They're also fun!
