Internet Buzzing With President’s Selfie
In this day and age of cell phones that do everything, we all have cameras in our pockets and take advantage of opportunity’s to snap photos of special moments. The internet was abuzz when President Obama took a ‘selfie’ photo with British Prime Minister David Cameron and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during the memorial service for Nelson Mandela.
Someone who snapped a photo of the trio taking the selfie, you can see that Michelle Obama does not look too happy about what is going on. Another report out said that Michelle was not happy with the President chatting with the Danish Prime Minister and actually swapped seats with the President.
In this day and age many wonder when is it not okay to snap a selfie? We all do it and sometimes it may not be appropriate, I think that at a funeral or memorial may not be the best place to do it, even if you bump into a celebrity at a restaurant, you might want to think twice before running up to capture the moment. It’s too bad that the buzz is about the President taking a picture during the event and not focusing in on the great speech he gave at the memorial service.
