A photograph is worth a thousand words, a perfectly timed one can speak volumes. There is a rare talent and impeccable timing required to capture a picture that evokes a powerful reaction whether it is joy, fear or sadness. Couple that with the highly accessible ability to take photos with our smartphones, we all have a chance to practise and eventually be at the right place at the right time.
Here are 10 of the best images captured. Some look beautifully staged like one woman striking a yoga pose at the beach. There are also a handful of others where you just know the subject of the picture wished a photo was never taken like being caught in the midst of throwing up. These photos may inspire you to be ready the next time an opportunity presents itself.
