Day 25: Spreading the awkwardness

by Sara

I love the AwkwardFamilyPhotos, it is really just brilliant.

“Childhood friends Mike and Doug began the blog after Mike saw an awkward vacation photo hung in his parents’ house. Realizing there were probably plenty of other people out there with their own awkward family images, the two friends decided to create a friendly place where everyone could come together and share their uncomfortable family moments. Thus, Awkward Family Photos was born. The authors started by posting a few of their own childhood photos and those provided by friends, and the site quickly took off and became an internet sensation; it now receives millions of hits daily and submissions from around the world.”

So this is how it all started…

And then:

“Yes, this is my engagement picture. We thought it would be cute meaning ’til death do us part, but everyone thought it meant our love was already dead.”

“The boy who’s about to live.”

“There are probably better places to watch from.”

“Home is where the heart is… as well as the chairs, window, Roman column, and stump.”

“You’ve located it. Now what?”

“Here’s to the man who always knows how to improvise.”

“After more than three years and over 150,000 photo submissions, we’ve seen many different levels of awkwardness but a select few have managed to defy awkward logic and truly leave us scratching our heads.”
