Reality Photo

Late on the scene, but thought worth posting in case anyone else hadn't seen this. My friend passed it on because he thought the girl in the middle taking a picture was Staci from DanceLife. (Oh, act like you didn't watch that. And no, Nolan's not the driver.)

In fact, this is the winning photo from the 2006 World Press Photo awards, taken by Spencer Platt of Getty Images. And it's not off the set of a TV show or music video. "The picture shows a group of young Lebanese driving through a South Beirut neighborhood devastated by Israeli bombings. The picture was taken on 15 August 2006, the first day of the ceasefire between Israel and Hezbollah when thousands of Lebanese started returning to their homes." Quite an interesting contrast.
