Recently I’ve been going through my travel photos from all of my memory cards and my phone and trying to back as many of them up as possible. When you’re working with old technology (hello four-year-old laptop and phone!), it’s a constant worry that something will just give up the ghost along with all your captured memories.
So, in order to pre-empt a disaster, I’ve been trying to do the responsible thing (for a change) and upload all of my photos. In going through my snaps from the last couple of years, I’ve uncovered some real doozies – photos that, for some reason or other, I felt compelled to take at the time, but that are actually some of the worst, most badly-composed and stupid photos I’ve ever taken in my life. Here are just a few of these “gems”, so that we can all have a good laugh at how sometimes we get it so, so wrong.
I think I thought I was being artsy with this one, trying to get the clouds in as well. Instead, it’s just part of a windmill and some sky. Fail.
