Photo of the year 2011

Yup it’s not five days into 2011 and already we may have the photo of the year!

The photo is in newspapers around the world and shows the killer of a Filipino councilman in the act of shooting him dead as the councillor was taking a photo of his family on New Year’s Eve in Caloocan City.

Sad as this event was it’s not likely to be only one of its kind. As cameras are now everywhere and carried by everyone who has a smart phone, we’re going to see a lot more amateur photojournalism in 2011.
