From the moment we wake up in the morning until we go to sleep at night, we are surrounded by pictures. Thanks to developments in technology, almost every device we own contains a camera of some sort, which has made it easier than ever to document our lives.

While this has led to one too many selfies and a lot of pointless photographs, on occasion, it has resulted in brilliance, with high res cameras revealing the extraordinary in the ordinary, and plain old cameras capturing the ‘right place at the right time’ moments that have to be seen to be believed.

1. How romantic…

Is that her dad in the mountains? Or worse, her ex-boyfriend? Either way, she should check out that sign!

2. School photographs show how much you’ve changed over time

But we hope this kid is still a rebel.

3. What a great group photo!

And an even better photobomber. Hey, dere little guy!

4. Their love put them on top of the world

But their adorable puppy totally stole the show.
