Not one for the holiday album! Tourists share their worst photo fails – from an upright snap of the Leaning Tower of Pisa to photobombing animals
- All of us dream about holidays throughout the year and the chance to go abroad
- We also seek perfect holiday photos, complete with blue skies and scenery
- But online gallery collated by TravelerDoor shows not everyone gets best photos
- Women left terrified by a manta ray while another saw the Notre Dame on fire
Many of us spend all year looking forward to holidays, and naturally everyone wants to capture the best snaps of their travels so they can look back on the happy memories.
But poor weather, cheeky animals and lack of photographic skill can make for a very underwhelming holiday album.
TravelerDoor has shared a funny selection of some of the worst travel photo fails from around the world, including a man who went all the way to California from Texas to enjoy the beach, only to find it was raining.
Elsewhere a tourist somehow managed to capture a photo of the Leaning Tower of Pisa looking more of less upright, while one was horrified to find Notre Dame in flames on her first trip to Paris.
Meanwhile, a mother took a photo of her sons visiting Mount Rushmore, and failed to get any of the presidential carvings in.
Here Femail reveals the hapless tourists who should have just left the camera at home.
