Has it ever happened to you to eagerly wait for the perfect moment to capture only to have it photobombed? This is exactly what happened to dozens of Harry Potter fans this Monday. They were anxiously waiting for the Hogwarts Express steam train to pass through a station, having their cameras prepared – only to have their shots photobombed by a local commuter train. Hilarious for some and disappointing for others, the moment was captured in a video by one of the observers.
The UK has been receiving some ridiculously warm weather recently. Scotland recently had its hottest day in over 100 years, and we’re still pretty toasty today – at least by UK standards. One has to remember that this sort of weather is so uncommon here that pretty much nobody in the UK even has AC, except in their car.
As it’s such a rare event, we often take to the local parks and beaches to soak up the sun while we can. One woman in Devon, England, though, decided to soak up the sun just as a pair of newlyweds showed up to take outdoor wedding photos. She refused to move, so they carried on shooting around her.
Photobombs can be the most annoying or the most hilarious thing. I especially love it when animals photobomb humans. This photobomb that interrupted KTVU’s weather report is funny as hell and so darn cute! What seems to be huge crow has photobombed the camera in the middle of the report and made the TV crew have a good laugh.
Photobombing can end up with some hilarious photos and videos. However, if it ruins your once-in-a-lifetime shot, I don’t think you’d feel like laughing. This is precisely what happened to a camera guy from The Weather Channel while he was shooting Georgia Dome’s implosion yesterday. And it’s sad and hilarious at the same time.
It’s typical. You wait forever for a bus to come along, and then they always seem to show up right when you don’t need them any more. The creator of this video, which was supposed to be of the demolition of a high rise block of flats a few days ago in Glasgow, Scotland, certainly didn’t need this bus coming along to block his shot.
David Bellis and his 3-year-old son won a prize worth £2,000 in a UK contest after submitting a selfie of the two posing next to a horse.
Luckily for the two, the horse named Betty spontaneously smiled at the camera and made many others smile too.
The one person who isn’t smiling, however, is Betty’s owner who claims she deserves a share of the prize.
Megan Rion of Imagine That Photography was out in the woods photographing a one-month-old baby when a deer suddenly appeared.
Megan told DIYP that this was not the first lucky customer to receive a surprise visit by this very deer, but this was the first time the deer appeared for a baby shoot.
Future photographers of this baby will have a hard time beating what is probably the best photo he’ll ever get.
Most often, photo-bombers are those annoying, inebriated trolls lurking in the shadows at parties or on the street. But, every now and then, they come in the form of an innocent and hilarious child.
Knoxville-based photographer Leah Bullard was shooting the wedding of clients Michelle and Anthony when she asked the bride and groom to kiss. It was at the moment that Michelle’s four-year-old daughter, Anderson, decided to steal the show and, with arm wrapped around his neck, plant a kiss firmly on the ring bearer’s lips.
The birth of internet slang is fascinating stuff, I’m sure most of you will recall the hoopla that flooded the web when the word “selfie” became official when it was named as word of the year by Oxford Dictionaries. Soon after that, Merriam-Webster decided to induct it into it’s dictionaries, too. It had a lot of people wondering, “Who makes these words up?”
Though most of us wouldn’t give the thought too much of our time, the dedicated folks over at Hopes & Fears took that simple question and went one step further. They wanted to know how new words, such as the ever increasing dialect of internet slang, are incorporated into sign language. To find out how new slang words entered into American Sign Language (ASL), Hopes & Fears got in touch with Bill Vicars, a Deaf/Hard of Hearing (HH) man who runs Lifeprint–an educational website devoted to helping people learn ASL.[Read More…]
There’s some pretty interesting and bizarre stock photography floating around the Internets and we’ve also undoubtedly seen some pretty clever uses for it. But, The Stock Photobomber (Matt Vescovo) may have just stole the show with his tongue in cheek series of Photoshopped stock images.
After painstakingly looking at about 845,742,923,012 stock photos during his 20-year long career as an art director in advertising, he’s come up with a way to make looking at boring, unrealistic stock images a whole lot more fun.
“I find that when I look at stock photos, I experience the same uncomfortable feeling I have when my bank teller asks me with a forced smile, how my morning is going or when I eat “Chick’n” or see an interview with Tom Cruise. It’s not simply that my teller’s greeting, the vegan meat substitute and the celebrity scientologist are fake, it’s how hard they pretend that they’re not…”
