Homesick

Be careful of drinking too much next time you’re out with friends or else you could experience a picture like this too. This girl probably tried to hold herself together for a group photo before involuntarily puking.

It’s Not Photoshop

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Smartphone Photography:009-sudden-doom-1948030.jpg

The timing of this photo is impeccable. A photographer was able to capture the mere seconds before this car head straight into the water, nose first.

Not the Eye!

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Smartphone Photography:015-recoil-straight-to-the-eyes-2133033.jpg

If you don’t know guns, you probably don’t understand why this photo is so concerning. She should be resting this rifle on her shoulder, not her eye. When it goes off it recoils back. Hopefully someone corrected her before a disaster happened.

Something’s Fishy

Screw Loose

Men Are Dumb

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Smartphone Photography:020-is-this-why-women-live-longer-than-men-2134542.jpg

All for the Photo

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Smartphone Photography:021-this-one-can-t-be-real-2134412.jpg

Imagine breaking a priceless piece of art just to take a photo of another piece of art. You would think museums would want to prevent this from happening by securing the pedestals to the floor.

Losing Her Balance

Photo-Op

Police Training

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Smartphone Photography:025-gotta-love-the-attack-suit-2133507.jpg

Ouch!

Macintosh HD:Users:brittanyloeffler:Downloads:Smartphone Photography:026-a-poor-judgement-party-2133444.jpg

We aren’t exactly sure what happened in the seconds leading up to this photo. All we do know is that he’s going to have some bruises in the morning.

Face Plant
