They say a picture speaks a million words, and this snap speaks volumes.
New England Patriots wide receiver Brandon Lloyd was captured on film as he prepared to score a touchdown.
Photographer Keith Nordstrom took this photo of an airborne Lloyd during Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills.
Nordstrom revealed that at first he didn’t even realize that he had captured a photo that would become a subject of fascination for internet users all around the world.
“I didn’t even know what I had,” he told Boston Magazine.
But the smile on Lloyd’s face made the photo a one-of-a-kind.
“The smile kind of makes it,” Nordstrom explained.
