|"No, it's time for MY closeup!"|
I like to think I run an equal-opportunity blog in which all of the animals I have are allowed their moments to shine. However, I also have a pug who loves to be the center of attention and he will storm into the middle of almost any photo as a result. Very often, I just give up and then crop him out of the photo later, but he seems to have caught on to my tricks and now he's butting his giant head in front of the other pets, so he can't be cropped out.
Good thing he's so cute!
I've heard that this is a pretty common phenomenon. It's so common, in fact, that it has its own specific word: Photobombing. The Huffington Post has created a pretty impressive slideshow of close to 130 of these things (and counting), and most of them are of animals. It seems that I am not alone.
So on future blog entries, if you see a blurred hand in the corner, I'm probably trying to wave Liam out of the picture. Or I might just leave him in there from now on. We'll see.
