We should turn the camera on ourselves

You can find them almost anywhere anymore – those photos labelled “awkward” or “embarrassing” or “what were they thinking?” This morning, on weather.com, I saw another one – this time it was about awkward Fourth of July photos and featured, of course, people in what most would consider sort of crazy clothing with a flag theme.

And what is wrong with this? It’s innocent and maybe some family time together was spent concocting the apparel and then posing for pictures. The intention of those who gather these photos, and practically point with big arrows to the introduction is: Hey, let’s snicker at somebody.

Well, isn’t that just special?

Okay, I will admit that when People of WalMart first came out, I looked and was at times taken aback . . . and thought myself more refined than those pictured. That was wrong, but it was human nature. And the novelty wore off. Especially after I started imagining a site featuring pictures of me.

Actually, I am considering posting AmeliaJake awkward photos, but there are so many to choose from . . .
