The one thing that really made a difference in the digital age, was the ability to take a picture of whatever you want, whenever you want. It turned pictures into less of a “once a year” thing, and also opened the door for a huge collection of “these didn’t come out quite right” pictures.
Most of the ruined pictures are pretty obvious. You can get photobombed, you can take a picture right as someone is sneezing, you can take a picture at night without turning on your flash (I get this all the time, don’t judge). Sometimes though, you spend years upon years looking at a picture. It’s perfectly fine from a regular point of view. You’ve looked at it a dozen, maybe a hundred times, and then it hits you: your picture got fucked up somewhere along the line.
Whether it’s become hilarious, anatomically improbable/impossible or downright scary, some people just realize one day that their treasured memory is in fact a true mystery. And that’s when the internet jumps in and gives people a spot to post their disturbing and hilarious pictures. Let’s take a look at some of the weirder ones.
