Bangkok:Sometimes you never know when the opportunity for an interesting selfie will present itself.

When Thailand`s military declared martial law early today, troops appeared on the streets at some key intersections in Bangkok. That didn`t necessarily mean the situation was tense, however.

Bangkok residents going about their morning routine didn`t hesitate to stop and snap a few photos on their smartphones.

Some posed with soldiers, who complied amiably.

Others, like these two young women, did what their counterparts all around the world do millions of times a day: grab a selfie. Except their photo was with the soldiers and their guns and equipment sitting close behind.
