<p>"You probably would not have taken this picture with a cellphone," Braun said. Clearly not — the child would have ended up with a dislocated shoulder.</p>

At the end of a run

<p>This one was taken last weekend at the annual Bay to Breakers run in San Francisco. "If you're a runner, you know exactly what this picture feels like," he said. Yes I do, and the next one would have shown a pool of vomit on the asphalt.</p>


<p>"Taking pictures on glass is very fast and allows you to capture a moment just when it happens," he said. You better catch that ball, or the next moment will find your glasses shattered on the ground and you with a broken nose.</p>

<p>"When we started testing with people at home, we started seeing family pictures that had a certain quality to them," he said. This photo must have been taken seconds before the baby began shrieking, because mom looks like an alien.</p>
