Ridiculously Photogenic Guy

OK, so if you haven't heard about this by now, you have apparently been hiding from information from beneath a rock somewhere. "Ridiculously Photogenic Guy" is the title of a random image taken by a random photographer at a Marathon event. The photographer started off by posting the picture to reddit (to which before this posting I didn't have an account with that service, but by the time I finished composing this posting, I did)! Click here to see the search results on Reddit. The twitter account alone raked up about 26,000 followers. Facebook….a cool 31000 subscribers..Keep in mind people…this was the power of just the image..it's not even like the guy in the picture was commenting, or entertaining these 'followers' or 'viewers'…it was just the picture. Now, I bet you are saying…where is this picture. That's part of the allure….making you wait…you've waited this long..but the wait ends now. Click here to view the Ridiculously Photogenic Guy. ABC News Interview and Article -http://gma.yahoo.com/blogs/abc-blogs/ridiculously-photogenic-guy-explains-photo-op-135655873–abc-news-topstories.html My point for posting this is simple. I'm not surprised of the power of social media, and the power the internet can boost the appeal of even the most random of images, but I am baffled that a random photographers random image of some runner can cause so much hoopla. Thousands of followers…the topic of aspiring Photographers blog postings..and hell..Good Morning A-damn-merica. ..and people wonder why I post and update so much! I'm ready to break the clock so me 15minutes doesn't stop!
