Shitty Holiday Photos

There’s something that has started happening over the last few years that annoys the shit out of me.

We went to Dubai last week on holiday. So while we were there we went up the Burj Kalifa, the tallest building in the world. We went as high as you could go, the 154th floor.

Up the top there are photographers. You sit down with your family, they say do this with your arms, look suprised, point at this, sit down and put your legs out. Then it’s all done and you shuffle along.

The photo they’re trying to sell you is you and your family at a green screen, with Burj related images in the background.

Whats the fucking logic here? Why are they doing this at the top of this tower? Something that can happen on the ground, literally anywhere in the world? Why are people buying these bullshit photos?

Look at the state of that. You’re like 800 meters above the ground, with views for miles. Why are you taking a photo of a greenscreen, pretending you’re there, when you’re actually there?

This happens everywhere now and it makes no sense. It hurts my brain. Stop please.
