The 71 Most Incredibly Timed Photos!

Do you remember what Henri Cartier Bresson said about the decissive moment? That it is the recognition of the significance of an event, in a fraction of a second , with the precise organization of forms , etc? Well, the following photos might not have been carefully planed or skillfully awatied, but they sure were decisive moments. Some awesome, some painful, others just very very funny.

However planed or unexpected , they are proof of what photography is all about : capturing the moment, freezing history like no other medium. Sure, you can capture a moment with video, but releasing a shutter at exactly rhe perfect time involves so much more skill, technique and not to mention,luck.

Without further ado, here are 71 amazing moments captured by photographers from all over the world.
