Its Just A Pile Of Stones!!! Dont See What All The Fuss Is About

The original idea for this was that my best mate, Bryan, was bored seeing the same old postcard photos of typical tourist sights whenever I came home from travelling.

So we decided on the anti-postcard photo.

Rather than taking the same old boring photo that we have all seen a million times of somebody looking happy in front of a famous landmark...we decided to change things around a little bit.

I'll be honest...it really is just a bunch of people looking bored and unhappy at times when they should be happy, simple as.

Just like the way I take photos of the lightbulb I travel around with, or the funny signs I try to photograph, the bored photos help to add a little bit of life to my photo albums and make my photos that little bit more original.

At least it helps keep my friends from absolute boredom.

I think to some extent it makes them carry on the belief that I could not truly be as happy as I claim to be when I travel.

I think of it as a more ironic statement...a photo showing travel to be less exciting that it truly is. No photo can ever capture the amazing feeling I get from travelling to some new city or country.
