From time to time, each of us ends up taking unsuccessful photos, such as ones where we have half-closed eyes or a strange grimace. But even when we actually look great in the frame, there’s always the possibility that something strange and funny is happening in the background. And then the most trivial shot turns into a masterpiece.
We offers you the chance to look at a fresh selection of photos where the main action is not in the foreground at all.
