Lately, photographing odd acts in odd places has been taking the internet by cyberstorm. New photo fads have been popping up left and right with little chance for the predecessor to cool down (much like Katy Perry’s outfits at the VMA’s. Shazam).
We’ve gone from planking, where one lies down on various odd objects (pictured above), to owling (crouching in high places and looking off into the distance, pensively):
Then to coning (grabbing your ice cream cone the wrong way):
To horsemanning (faked beheading):
Or any combination:
And now we seem to have moved on to batmanning. Yes, a picture in which the person hangs from their feet in the air (sounds incredible tough):
Personally, I think these fads are a tad ridiculous, but I’ll admit that I am guilty of planking on one count.
What do you think of these photo fads? Have you done any of them? Will you do any of them? Is batmanning too extreme?
