An otherwise normal photo that has been ruined or spoiled by someone who was not supposed to be in the photograph.
See that man peering out of the window on the right. I don't think he was supposed to be in the shot.
So I did a search of some family photos belonging to a friend. And I found three wonderful examples of photobombing.
This particular photo goes nicely with our theme photo as there's a bike in it. Actually it's a boy on a bike. You have to look really hard to see him (he's on the right side of the photo). Does he spoil the shot? No, I don't think so.
But if you look a little harder, there's another interloper here who really does ruin the shot. It's that poor dead animal hanging around the woman's neck. Can you imagine anything sadder than that? Even his little legs conveniently act as a closure for this goulish wrap. This was before Velcro so I'm not sure how the legs stick together. Maybe they were sewn together and then she drapes it over her head (before she puts on that enormous hat, of course).
Then there's Bernice and friend at the shore in their lovely bathing outfits. There are 3 people who are trying to get into this shot and Bernice and friend haven't got a clue, they're so happily mugging for the photographer. Not only are the 2 girls in the background staring, but also that man in the boat. Will no one give them any privacy?
This was written on the back of the photo:
No mention of the peeping Toms.
This photo is one of those real mysteries. See if you can help me with this one.
Thanks Kat, for introducing me to photobombing. I will never look at a photo the same way again.
