Ballet News | photograph goes viral
A couple of weeks ago I posted this photograph to the Ballet News facebook page.
This photograph, apparently showing numerous dancers in the process of changing a single lightbulb, has notched up :
804 comments (of which 400 were deleted as they were not in English and no translation was provided – the Ballet News facebook page is in English)
As the photograph went viral, I struggled to keep up with the notifications thundering through from facebook every hour of the day. I’m still not sure what is so exceptional about this particular photograph – if you look at the Ballet News facebook page you’ll see hundreds of fabulous, interesting, varied photographs. But this one has topped them all and seems to have been compelling viewing, capturing reader’s imagination all over the world.
