There are people who have made a living taking amazing pictures on their phones, but for most of us, the images we snap are just to remind us of what we were doing, how cute our kids were at a certain age, or to share our amazing pets with friends on the internet.
These people may have thought they were snapping an average, every-day picture, but when they looked at the image, they realized they’d captured something magical.
