In the modern world, we take more photographs than ever before. Almost every technological device is equipped with a camera, so a good photo opportunity rarely passes us by. But not all photographs are equal, and the best pictures usually contain something unexpected.

It’s no wonder that the popularity of photobombing has grown exponentially in recent years. If you see a stranger (or ideally a group of strangers) taking a photograph, the irresistible urge to photobomb will start to rise, and before you know it you’ll be in someone else’s snaps.

Here are 21 photobombing heroes that we can all aspire to…

1. “My lady friend wanted a piggyback picture on the beach, and a random biker watching the sunset said he wanted one too.”

This guy’s clearly a lot stronger than he looks.

2. “My friend tried to take a nice picture at the mall.”

It’s amazing that they didn’t notice the creeper behind them.

3. “My photobomb at Coachella was captured by the paparazzi.”

If you’re going to photobomb, you might as well make the news at the same time.

4. “Took a photo of my buddy while he was fishing. I call this one Damn, she found me.”

Imagine that girl was his ex!

Unlike our parents and grandparents, us millennials will be able to remember a lot more of our lives thanks to the copious numbers of photographs that we take. So don’t let your 80-year-old self down, and photobomb with reckless abandon for their future enjoyment!
