especially family photos on holiday. If I was on my own I wouldn't even bother.
otherwise, why would you ba (as in cba)?
they'd like to share happy memories in the form of photographs
Stop you as you are minding your own business, thrust their camera at you and ask you to take their picture.
I just say ''Sorry, no''
And then they look at me like I'm the cunt! BS
JFC, you sound like a prize dickhead.
with my daughter. Erm, fuck off. We asked if they wanted one of the couple themselves, they said no.
Once got asked to take a photo for a guy as he traveled on the escalator at a tube station. Was so odd.
I believe. And my daughter was very cute, blonde and with curly hair. So, make of that what you will.
taking pictures with our children.
So I stood up and took one with my own camera and sat back down again. My mum had to explain afterwards that I'd been a little silly
I'm totally going to do this next time someone asks.
but I took a load of photos on my last trip, cause everything looked so cool. And I really enjoy looking through them all. I think I'm a convert.
Why not? Memories are faulty, good to have something to jog the memory. And you never know: people die unfortunately, or betray your friendship, so its nice to have something to remind you of better times.
Must try harder.
Photos of loved ones had so much potential for you too.
I don't have the best memory so there's no way I'd remember all the wonderful places I've been and the good times I've had without photos, especially when I want to look back on them decades from now (if I'm not dead).
People who rag on people who take photos are the worst. Wind your neck in and let people enjoy the moment as they see fit.
That Cuntby is one of those AI programs that's effectively a distilled version of some kind of logical conclusion to the dis breeding program.
when people like you go on a killing spree it's easier for the rest of us to know who to look out for during the search.
1) Because there's a beautiful view you'll never ever see again: http://instagram.com/p/nbekA_sURJ/
2) Because sometimes the light was right and everything looked great, even usually boring buildings: http://instagram.com/p/j9tjJZMUS4/
3) Because the world is great and we all need reminding occasionally: http://instagram.com/p/nVxpKasUZn/
NB. There's loads of other reasons, you complete toilet.
Why write anything down? Why write a song about something? Why not let all memory and history fold into the ether?
Phones aside, I've never owned a camera.
Think the last photos I took were of the Olympics.
Here's a picture of the Eiffel Tower/Grand Canyon/the sea.
I know what it looks like you fucking prick.
Taking pictures of your family is the business.
But did that stop me taking a billion photos of the Eiffel Tower when I went to Paris? No. No it did not.
it's being shown them.
Some prick I know went to the US a while back and I had to sit through an album of photos of landmarks. No people. He could have sent me his itinerary and I could have google imaged better shots than he took. Would have saved me going round his house.
What's that over there? The most reproduced image of all time? Let's take a hundred blurry pictures of it over the heads of 50 other people doing the same. Sorry, no time to look at any paintings, I've got photos to take!
Took a camcorder with a great zoom function, zoomed into beautiful details and took a photo of those. (a beautiful face or central character)
seeing people use the flash in broad daylight/to take a picture of a landscape/distant object
people should have to pass an exam to be able to buy a camera, especially an expensive one that's better than mine
I'm pretty sure some people experience 90% of their holidays only through the screen on their cameras.
so of course you think that.
I mean why not just open a butcher's shop specialising in goat right next door?
Joyless prick. But mollycoddling people like that doesn't work. #toughlove
there are much better pictures out there, just google "eiffel tower". Pictures of fun things you did or restaurants or whatever, go for it.
and we've decided it would be better to ban you.
you could take it as a compliment confirming that you are correct.
I've reconsidered and reckon it would be for the best to can Hatfood instead.
see also dancing, smiling
I reckon kik did it once. Possibly in_wainbows under an alt-username.
A girlfriend/boyfriend or a job showing off. It could have been one of about 50 people posting this today. In_wainbows just managed to dash in there
But Balonz showed me pictures of his dinner once
Seemed to be a fan of rose wine and eating omelettes without a knife
wish I was better at it
I have loads.
I get embarrassed. I think as long as you are not taking 300 photos of 'the moment' rather than just enjoying the moment you're doing it right.
I like looking back at pictures but I don't like:
a) posing for photos
b) getting other people to pose for photos
c) deciding on a good time/location to pose for photos
Need to hire a professional photographer who takes photos without you realising and everyone always looks great.
Sort of agree - you need to know who will play up for the camera if and give you an interesting shot if you point it at them and who will just look awkward.
Those typical "family in a line" poses piss me off no end, though.
as they take photos of random buildings or bridges which aren't famous or important.
I mean really, there's no need for that. I'd much rather just look pissed off and appear to have some sort of attitude.
I can sort of understand if you're saying you'd rather be natural than putting on an emotion
But looking pissed to off to appear to have attitude is exactly the same as faking a smile to appear happy you buffoon
you've got loads to be angry about
Fine, more melancholic than pissed off.
But ultimately it's the cheesy grin itself that annoys me more than faking an expression.
anyway, I'm getting bitten now so plz let's move on to another thread
will just be one of them or possible both smiling with something vaguely interesting in the background. All pulling the same face. You may as well photoshop yourself in.
is look for people who are taking pictures of buildings or landmarks with no historical or architectural importance!
(one of my favourite ever pics)
But then in maybe 20 years, when what you took a picture of isn't there anymore (a good example being what is now underneath the Olympic Park) photos of an identikit industrial estate and rubbish heap are suddenly impossible to recreate and a lot more interesting.
Good photography is not only about capturing moments but having the foresight to see what will be interesting in future by taking pictures of things others might not have noticed or take for granted.
I've just had a quick trot through my flickr there, and so much joyu has been brought to me in two minuts fo browsing.
like- remember this (CHINTZYLACROIX, MEOWINGTON AND MSMONNIPENNI- REMEMBER THIS FUCKING DEEP FRIED PIGS TAIL YOU MADE ME EAT.) :'''D
I'm not a sentimental guy and barely take any photos, don't really like having them taken, and I think people do generally take too many and litter hard drives and photo albums with all this junk data. I wouldn't want to not have any, though. Maybe folk just need to pick their moments better.
There are far too many amateur photographers though. In the small wedge of the population my Facebook friends list represents, there is far too high a proportion of people who clearly think they're either a) any good at it or b) set for a career in something we don't really need that many of. Snaps of delapidated buildings from moody angles or extreme close-ups of leaves. Leave it out, you'll look at it for a second, I'll look at it for a second and promptly forget it ever existed. We don't need this stuff. Photography's not a proper job anyway, most people could do it well if they had a natty camera.
What I think is so extraordinary about the photograph is that we have a piece of paper with this image adhered to it, etched on it, which interposes itself into the plane of time that we are actually in at that moment. Even if it comes from as far back as 150 years ago, or as recently as yesterday, or a minute before as a Polaroid color photograph, suddenly you bring it into your experience. You look at it, and all around the real world is humming, buzzing and moving, and yet in this little frame there is stillness that looks like the world. That connection, that collision, that interfacing, is one of the most astonishing things we can experience
We all experience it. Those moments when we gasp and say, “Oh, look at that.” Maybe it’s nothing more than the way a shadow glides across a face, but in that split second, when you realize something truly remarkable is happening and disappearing right in front of you, if you can pass a camera before your eye, you’ll tear a piece of time out of the whole, and in a breath, rescue it and give it new meaning
They teach you about your own unraveling past, or about the immediacy of yesterday. They show you what you look at. If you take a photograph, you’ve been responsive to something, and you looked hard at it. Hard for a thousandth of a second, hard for ten minutes. But hard, nonetheless. And it’s the quality of that bite that teaches you how connected you were to that thing, and where you stood in relation to it, then and now
photosss are soo goooooooood
I have friends who are tagged in more photos on Facebook than have ever been taken of me, I reckon.
Your point about family holidays is fucking garbage trolling though.
you can thumb through some photos of your once-family putting on a smile for the camera in front of the leaky, shitsmelling caravan in morecambe and pretend that you used to be happy
...who hasn't got a photo of a person taking a photo of a statue of a man with a massive package punching a dragon to death while his girlfriend walks away in disgust. https://scontent-b-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xfa1/t1.0-9/164224_10200408619272489_1974671474_n.jpg
