When the phrase “will you take a picture for us?” fails: Contrast

We’ve all done it at least once… We hand a complete stranger our camera and ask them to take a picture for us. Sometimes the picture is a keeper, and other times the entire process is a catastrophe.

While climbing the Great Wall of China I asked an Australian man to take a photo of my friends and I—he zoomed in so much that the Great Wall wasn’t in the shot whatsoever.

At Comic-Con my husband and I wanted a picture with a Stormtrooper, so we asked a guy dressed as Deadpool to take a picture for us. “Deadpool” was a nice guy, and he happily snapped a few photos for us. However, we later realized that he didn’t push the button hard enough for any of the photos to take. We ended up taking a selfie with the Stormtrooper.

The photo below is of my husband and I at Hilton Head, SC. A lovely old couple took it for us. After snapping this picture the old lady said, “I have to take another, the sun ruined it,” but after glancing at the photo I replied to her, “no it didn’t, it’s perfect.”
