When we’re on vacation, we like to take a few photos to keep the memories alive and to share our adventures in the most beautiful and fascinating places on the planet with our friends and relatives. The essence of a destination is captured in good travel photography, whether it’s beautiful panoramas, diverse communities, architectural wonders, historical sites, or a beautiful mountain that is the subject of the photograph. When we travel, we snap photographs to help us remember the feelings we had when we saw the most breathtaking sights.
Let’s pretend for a moment that you have been traveling or hiking for days and have finally arrived at your destination. You look around and notice that something doesn’t feel quite right. It turns out that you’ve been hiking for days in order to see the summit of a mountain, or that your view of the Eiffel Tower has been obscured by bad weather. What are you going to do? Alternatively, when you have finally arrived at your location and the weather is ideal, but no one has taken a nice photograph of you.
Those amusing instances when people have flown across the world and absolutely failed to capture its beauty in a photograph, moments when they might have discovered more heritage in their local farmers market than that blurry photo of the monuments, are all too frequent. This collection of disappointing vacation images is amusing; these folks recognize the irony of flying hundreds of miles to view something that is either obscured by fog or undergoing maintenance at the time of their visit.
