About

Doesn't matter if our heads are proportionate. Cut a hole in a piece of wood and we'll pose in it.

Doesn't matter if our heads are proportionate or not. Cut a hole in a piece of wood and we'll say cheese.

Vacation pictures are in a class by themselves, perhaps containing the highest percentage of contrived snapshots out of any other albums.

Some tourist attractions actually hang signs mandating that we pose with their recommended scenic backdrops. We cannot resist posing with corny mascots, sign boards with holes for our heads, and wacky sculptures such as the World’s Biggest Sombrero.

Sometimes we’ll even pay 30 bucks to wear the dirty rags of a Civil War soldier or 1930s dancing girl. C’mon, seriously, do you think those photo booths ever do laundry?

We leave our homes to go far away and prowl around other people’s homes. And we have to “prove” that we were there.

For many of us, taking pictures is the reason to go on vacation.

So join us, as we capture tacky poses, tacky places and tacky souvenirs with the noble goal of creating a handsome coffee table book that will grace Bed & Breakfasts from Rhode Island to Riyadh.
