I really hate it. Great photo op of my DCs and their friends playing at a trampoline park and some dick head deliberately waved his hand in front of my phone. No battery left now. Prick.

Disclaimer - I'm tired and had very little sleep so am a grumpy cow today.

there are always dick heads around! take a deep breath, and enjoy the trampoline park and your DC having fun!

Did you bring your desktop to the park....?

How are you MNing otherwise?!

I'm in the car now waiting for a million McDonalds breakfasts and a strong coffee for me Queen. Sorry, should have been clearer.

I love photobombers! My favourite pics are the ones with random wierd faces in the backround grin

Oh god, please bring me a McDonald's breakfast!!

You're right though, it is so damn rude - esp bunny ears behind someone or putting your hand in front of the camera. What is the actual point?!

Equally as bad are people who really want to take a photo for you and then zoom in so much they miss the surroundings and any background of where you actually are. Infuriating.

Yes, photo bombers are shit heads.... but now I'm sitting at my desk craving a Sausage Mcmuffin!!

Yep and my mum does it when someone she knows is trying to take a photo. Thinks she's fucking hilarious. I think she's rude.

I have a relative who does this and if pisses me off so much. So many nice pictures with his constipation face stuck in the side of them. Dick. He has been told in no uncertain terms - he's also good at ruining photos in general by pulling a stupid face in them.

It's not really photobombing to shove your hand in front of the camera - that's just rude.

If he'd joined in the photograph, or a funny horse had appeared, or a duck wondered by...that would be photobombing. Putting oneself into the photo for amusement.

Shoving your hand in front of the camera is just stopping a photo being taken. And it's not amusing at all.

DS had a sleepover last night and his friend is moving to Oz on Sat so this is the last time they'll all be together so I'm a bit sad anyway. It would have been a lovely pic and I'm stupidly angry about it!

It was my Ds's last day at his old school at the end of term, I took my camera in to take pics of him with his friends, his teachers photo bombed EVERY one, The pics are hilarious and bloody great. Ds had no idea till I got them home and showed him on pc grin

Putting your hand in front of a camera is just rude though. did you know the person? Did you say anything to him? I can not imagine any stranger actually doing that confused

My dog photobombed me when I was taking a picture. It was so cute, that I have a copy of it on my desk now smile

WhatamessIgotinto Tue 16-Aug-16 10:59:40

No I don't know him Fuchs, he was with his young son and clearly thought it was hilarious. I kind of did a huffy 'thanks a lot' and growled but he was off by then anyway. Twat.

Dog photo bombing is acceptable of course!

toadgirl Tue 16-Aug-16 11:00:39

These are not my dogs shock

To answer your question, yes, it is pretty rude.

It's just as well most of us use digital cameras these days. Would be extra-maddening if it was all rolls of film and expensive developing and you got your snaps back all photo-bombed to hell!

Toadgirl grin That is hilarious.

I can't decide who the photobomber actually is, though.

That could be a thread?

*Is it the dog in the background walking by?
*Is it the one at the front getting in the way of the two sexy dogs?
*Or did the photo belong to the dog in front and those other two dogs started having sex to win the photobombing Olympics?

So many questions that I fear may never be answered grin

A stranger would get a long and pointed death stare from me. And trust me that I do great death stares.

A possible second time and I'd ask him what the fuck was he thinking and to stop.
