weekly photo challenge: extra, extra

Posted on Updated on

The Daily Post challenge was to “share a photo that has a little something extra.” Michelle said: “A beautiful photo is one thing, but a photo with an unexpected detail has personality and pop” and sheย suggested possibly sharing something with a humorous element.

We tend to not post photos of ourselves on our blog but we just had to share this photo of us on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh back in 2006 with a “cheeky photo bomb” (pun intended) that we never noticedย until we were revisiting our travel photos recently.

Hope this is not in poor taste… and you find it as funnyย as we did! Certainly, a little extra on the side in this photo! ๐Ÿ˜‰ (Thank goodness for photoshop)

    As a person who spent their youth in Edinburgh I was drawn to this photo. The funny thing is I had to look at it twice to get what you were talking about! Saw the shadow, but not the lady bending over. My mind works in mysterious ways. Oops! Unwitting tourist, or a casual bystander caught in less than favourable position!

      Yep! Never would’ve thought we could use this photo in its original state for something without at least cropping it first. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Hi Lynda – Glad you found it funny too ๐Ÿ™‚ We were a little shocked when we first “discovered” it but since have found it a “good laugh” as you say!!

      Hahahah – Clearly you and David are on the same wavelength because he said the same thing… that our readers might think we were the photo bombers ๐Ÿ˜‰

      LOL – Tell us about it! Lesson we learnt: if we ever are asked to take a photo of someone… just to make sure we look at the whole picture and surroundings for any “unexpected” extras now!
