We usually take photos to record the happiest moments that we live, share them with those whom we love and to keep these happy moments memorable forever, but it seems that all the photos which are taken are not the same. There are photos that are taken to record the worst moments in our life and to also make them memorable forever, these photos are the ones which are taken just moments before death.
