People usually like to take selfies so that they don’t have to rely on someone else’s photo skills. Not everyone is capable of taking a good photo. At least when you take a selfie, you have just yourself to rely on. How can the photo go wrong if you’re the one pressing the button — especially if you get to see how you look in the photo right before you take it.
But nope, even selfies can fail us — specifically if you don’t check what’s in the background prior to taking the photo. Backgrounds are very important and you’ll see how true that is in the photos below.
#1. She’s so happy with her new hair.
But something tells me she might be happy about something else as well.
You should probably put things like that away before taking a photo.
#3. Probably the best selfie ever of a man, a baby and a dog.
You can’t beat this type of composition.
#4. This traffic is so annoying, ugh!
Let’s see, holding the phone in one hand, and a drink in the other, eh? Yeah that makes sense while you’re in “traffic.”
#5. He took a selfie and saw himself 20 years in the future.
Kind of like running into a doppleganger but a future one.
#6. Little girl selfie gets photobombed by her father.
Always check before you take the photo.
#7. “One wrong move and it’s mine.”
He’s ready to take that ice cream once it’s the least bit available to him.
#8. A spider makes a special appearance!
The girl on the left is intense but has anyone else noticed the girl on the right kept the same facial expression each photo?
#9. A little brother fail.
So was he opening or closing the bathroom door?
#10. It looks like Australian police have already had enough of your sh_t.
You know it’s serious when the police are putting up the middle finger.
#11. Just a mother’s proud moment of her son.
It doesn’t make the photo any less “hard.”
#12. Looks like a normal group photo… until you see it.
At least he got cleaned up for the picture!
#13. He sent his friends a picture of his turf-burn.
But when you see it…. you’ll wish you didn’t see it.
#14. “Yeah sis, another selfie… great idea.”
Little sister is not amused.
#15. A sneaky selfie before mom checks in, little does she know…
That was probably the last selfie she ever took.
