    Do you ever wonder about how many pictures you could be in the background of? Completely unintentionally, just in the background of some stranger's photograph, or even show up in a crowd shot on TV or documentary?

    Wouldn't it be cool if you could find those pictures :O

    [[EDIT]]: Oh gosh, Imagine how many pictures you could have been the subject of without knowing D: NOPE

    I've walked past professional looking camera setups in my local area and central Manchester so it's possible!

    Yeah I kept thinking that recently when I was in Blackpool recently. When I was at the touristy places such as The Pleasure Beach and the piers, all I could see were constant camera flashes so I was no doubt in a lot of randomers pics.
    I would be happy to see any background pics I am. Dread to think what face I pulled in them though lol.

    I always seem to be wearing something ugly. Like a faded teeshirt and some joggers as I'm on my way to the supermarket or gym.

    That would be cool.

    I find the idea that you're a stranger in others' lives something worth contemplating now and again.

    I'm not photogenic AT ALL so no, finding those pictures won't be cool. :afraid:

    Same, I've seen professional set ups outside loads of times. I always worry I'll see myself on some huge poster one day, looking like complete crap.

    My friend took a selfie in a mirror last week and I was in the background. I had no idea the photo existed until she uploaded it onto Facebook and another friend mockingly told me how fit I looked in it. I cringed hard at how awful I looked.
