How Far Will You Go For a Selfie?
Selfies are here to stay, but some people it seems are taking the self taken photos a little too seriously. It’s the social media phenomenon that has taken over the world with everyone since the day the phones with cameras broke trough. Now it seems that there is an award for best selfie, so people would do anything to win. There are, however, a new breed of competitors each vying for the title of ‘Most Extreme Selfie’. These people live by the motto – If you find yourself in an intense situation make the best out of it by taking a selfie for the whole world to applaud on the internet. Here’s a list of the most Extreme Selfies we could find.
1 This guy, named Christian, taking a selfie as he runs for his life at a bull run
at Baytown, Texas
He is either too competitive to win the heart of the Internet or a little crazy, because who has the time to take their phone out, turn on the camera, and take a selfie while running from a crazy bull that is just mere centimeters behind you. The chances to get really hurt or even killed in this situations are pretty big, but apparently this guy wasn’t thinking of that.
2 Kiril Oreshkin, an original daredevil photographer, who likes taking selfies when he has the disadvantage of falling to his death from tall skyscrapers
“Hey can you help me, take this picture for me?” – Sure. – “Okay, just let me pose a little.” – Yeah, OK, whoa, dude, what are you doing, stop it! – “It’s cool, it’s a extreme selfie, now snap the picture, just do it faster, I can’t feel my arms.”
3 Again Kiril Oreshkin
This guy is probably an adrenalin junkie, since he doesn’t even have a normal selfie. Mostly he hangs on tall skyscrapers, risking his own life to take these pictures, but it seems it’s his thing.
4 Kiril casually walking on top of a bridge
Seriously dude, just stop it. We got it, you are brave and fearless, but we are getting mortified just looking at you. Maybe the better question here is, who is the other crazy person to climb up with him to take the picture?
5 Woman’s selfie while a camel bites her head
We bet she didn’t expect this to happen, but since she and the camel were so aligned, she decided to take advantage of the situation, snap that selfie anyway and post it online. This is how you get popularity.
6 Construction workers taking selfies while at work
Okay, he is safely tied up while doing his business, so we are not worried about this time. It’s cute that he find time to take the selfie up there. It’s a good picture, though.
7 Hot air balloon selfie
Admit it, you wouldn’t resist taking this type of selfie if you had the chance to take a hot air balloon ride. It’s pretty awesome and a little dangerous, but what is life without a little adventure, right?
8 And the winner, the king of selfies
The International Space Station astronaut Aki Hoshide, from Japan took this magnificent selfie and beat everyone else’s poor tries to take extreme self photos. What makes this selfie better than the rest? Well, take a look, the planet Earth is reflecting in his visor.
