The Art of Photobombing

I discovered this amazing website while visiting Cute Overload. I then proceeded to spend a good 2 hours looking at every picture I possible could, laughing out loud and calling Tim over to my computer.

This is their official definition:

"You’re on vacation at the beach, or waiting on line at the open bar at your cousin’s neighbor’s uncle’s sister’s wedding, or at your BF’s Frat Party.

You’re having a good time, everything seems normal but -

Bam! You go over your memory card and WTF is that asshat doing behind you?!


A few of my favorites.

Here are a few of my own:

Why is there a woman posing like Frankenstein over my left shoulder?

This should have been a nice picture honoring Erica for "Outstanding Student." Instead, Griffin chose that exact moment to display the skills of Stretch Armstrong.

Please any of you out there that have a photobomb, send it to me at michampton@gmail.com and we shall display them all. Allicat, Caca, Chris, Kristin, Ashley?

Your photobombs are PERFECT. You know what, I don't even look behind the main subjects of pictures half the time, I need to scrutinize my pictures now.

I love that website even though it is chock full of scary naked people running around in the background of most the pictures. :)

Oh and btw, I took that shot of Griff stretching his toy in front of everyone--he would NOT stop for the picture, so I went ahead and took it anyway. :(

I love the Dad photobomb the best, I think.

That is hilarious. I am going to go home tonight and search through every picture I have ever taken to look for photobombs. I can't think of any off the top of my head...

I can't wait to see if I can find any treasures like yours!

Erica said...

LOL LOL LOL I can't believe you have so many photo bombs! I've never noticed that guy behind us in that one of us in the ponchos!

Okay I am off to look for photobombs in my own collection.

and another LOL.

Lol, totally agree with Griffin, the one of your dad is perfect! Beautiful backdrop, everyone in their places, grandma pops into the shot LOL.

Kristin said...

This is hysterical. I love the frankenstein and the person who's got crabs...

Oh, and the cat is great too.

I'll have to look through my pictures and see if I can find anything, though I tend to take photos with nothing in them but scenery. :)

Ashley Rae said...

LOL! That is freaking hilarious. I definitely laughed out loud- I didn't just write it.

Ok, I will look through my pictures and see what I can find. Haha
