Suddenly this woman pulled out her mobile phone and took a photo of herself smiling with Cameron and the US president. I captured the scene reflexively. All around me in the stadium, South Africans were dancing, singing and laughing to honour their departed leader. It was more like a carnival atmosphere, not at all morbid. The ceremony had already gone on for two hours and would last another two. The atmosphere was totally relaxed – I didn’t see anything shocking in my viewfinder, president of the US or not. We are in Africa.
I later read on social media that Michelle Obama seemed to be rather peeved on seeing the Danish prime minister take the picture. But photos can lie. In reality, just a few seconds earlier the first lady was herself joking with those around her, Cameron and Schmidt included. Her stern look was captured by chance.

Love this picture!
We all know who really runs this country…
There are other people out there that may not like our stance and think of us as hypocritical. So be it, but for us, we see a guy who made a decision that he regrets. He didn’t fight to pay the price. He paid it. Now we’re part of his future. — St. Louis Cardinals Manager Mike Matheny on the controversy surrounding the team’s acquisition of shortstop Jhonny Peralta.

Who taught me to suck in my stomach,
or my cheeks?
Who told me to stand with my legs apart
and my hips thrust back
to create the illusion of a gap
between my thighs?
Who made me believe that the most beautiful part of me
is my negative space? — Negative Space (via breksheabutter)
