Drone may have just accidentally captured the best wedding photo of all time.

He’s still trying to figure out who the people in the photo are.

Filmmaker Brandon Li has stumbled into creative brilliance, thanks to a photograph he “accidentally” took that many are calling one of the most romantic images of all time.


Hoping to catch some great footage of the sunset, Li was flying a drone helicopter over buildings in Hong Kong. However, when he began going through his footage later, he noticed the drone camera had captured an image of a couple in wedding outfits sprawled out across some grass on top of the J Residence Hotel.

“A friend and I were testing out a DJI Phantom 3 in the Wan Chai/Causeway bay area of Hong Kong, mostly trying to catch the sunset,” Li told PetaPixel. “But the battery was almost dead so we pointed the camera down to catch another angle and let the drone return to home.”

The incredible image has moved millions of people around the globe and become an instant sensation. And as great as the image itself is (Li said he did a bit of color correcting to help fully bring out the impact of the couple), the most intriguing part of the story remains unsolved: just who are these people?

“[I have] no idea who they are, but I assume they were practicing a pose for a wedding photograph or something,” Li explained. “Or maybe they were just making lawn angels.”

Now, Li is hoping the couple, or anyone who might know their identities, will reach out to him through his Facebook page. But maybe the mystery is better left unsolved. After all, what could be more perfect than the beautiful little narrative this surprising bit of drone footage has already shared with the world?

We've all felt lonely at some point in our lives. It's a human experience as universal as happiness, sadness or even hunger. But there's been a growing trend of studies and other evidence suggesting that Americans, and people in general, are feeling more lonely than ever.

It's easy to blame technology and the way our increasingly online lives have further isolated us from "real" human interactions. The Internet once held seemingly limitless promise for bringing us together but seems to be doing just the opposite.

Except that's apparently not true at all. A major study from Cigna on loneliness found that feelings of isolation and loneliness are on the rise amongst Americans but the numbers are nearly identical amongst those who use social media and those who don't. Perhaps more importantly, the study found five common traits amongst those who don't feel lonely.

In September 1939, the Nazis invaded Poland. By April 1940, the gates closed on the Lodz Ghetto, the second largest in the country after Warsaw.

Throughout the war, over 210,000 people would be imprisoned in Lodz.

Among those held captive was Henryk Ross. He was a Jewish sports photographer before the Nazi invasion and worked for the the ghetto's Department of Statistics during the war. As part of his official job, he took identification photos of the prisoners and propaganda shots of Lodz' textile and leather factories.

Joey Grundl, a pizza delivery driver for a Domino's Pizza in Waldo, Wisconsin, is being hailed as a hero for noticing a kidnapped woman's subtle cry for help.

The delivery man was sent to a woman's house to deliver a pie when her ex-boyfriend, Dean Hoffman, opened the door. Grundl looked over his shoulder and saw a middle-aged woman with a black eye standing behind Hoffman. She appeared to be mouthing the words: "Call the police."

"I gave him his pizza and then I noticed behind him was his girlfriend," Grundl told WITI Milwaukee. "She pointed to a black eye that was quite visible. She mouthed the words, 'Call the police.'"

A post on the Murdered by Words subreddit is going viral for the perfect way a poster shut down a knee-jerk "double-standard!" claim.

Most people would see the story as something positive. A dad goes out of his way to learn a skill that makes his daughter look fabulous.
