Week 8+1

Yes, I went hipstamatic this week.  Was out and about during the royal wedding and heard the sound of fighter jets coming nearby.  I managed to get the phone out quick enough to capture this one.  At first I thought not much of it, but the more I looked at the photo I thought it strange that a military flyover coincided with the royal wedding.  Then I realized that beyond the tree in the foreground this exact scene could have been played out over the skies of Libya at that very moment.  With the plethora of imagery coming out of conflict zones on iPhones now that Damon Winter’s work has been validated by POYI awards, I felt this image blurred the lines even more.

So you choose: Sky over Central London or Sky over Libya.
