A photobomb occurs when a person (known or unknown) suddenly appears in the camera view of a picture you are about to take. This sudden interference may be intentional or unintentional but in the end, this “unwanted person” will appear in your photo. It’s somewhat ok if it’s a close friend or relative who photobombs your pic. However when some unknown person comes out of nowhere to show up on your camera…that can really annoy you. Most of the time it’s a “necessary nuisance” in crowded places but sometimes it might end up being comical.
Photobombing has become an internet meme. There are people out there who want to purposely ruin other people’s pics in the name of humor.
Here are some photobombing pics (intentional and unintentional): All photos: Courtesy - Yahoo.
