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

When Thailand's military declared martial law early Tuesday, 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.
