“Autographs are old school. Selfies are the new trend.”

Well, if there is one photograph that encapsulates this statement the best, it is this latest photograph from Hillary Clinton’s campaign event in Orlando. 

At first glance, the picture looks like the crowd is trying to click a picture of a person on the other side of the room and the presidential nominee of the Democratic Party of the USA seems to be waving at that person. Of course, that’s how many on social media perceived it as well.


However, in reality, the crowd was trying to take a selfie with the woman who could be, in a few months’ time, the first woman president of the United States of America.

The photograph clicked by Barbara Kinney, a photographer of Clinton’s campaign, was shared by thousands of people.

This photograph will certainly be one of the enduring images of Hillary’s campaign trail, irrespective of whether she wins or not.  

Some who even asked whether she staged it by standing on a stool.
