I think we’ve all had a problem with a new piece of technology. You get your fancy little gadget, you turn it on, and then… you don’t know what to do with it. Hence this poor old lady attending the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. She’s excited, she wants to take some great pictures of the best athletes in the world, and all she gets are a bunch of pictures of a gigantic eyeball. Not that that’s not cool, but it’s definitely not someone skeleton-ing down the track at 80 miles an hour with his or her head inches from ice.
As funny as it is, I think we can all empathize. I know that I’ve tried to take pictures with the wrong end of the camera before, especially when I was in a hurry trying to capture something especially cool when I had a limit on how long I could take to get into picture position. I’ve never pulled the trigger on an eyeball selfie, but I’ve been close before. When I had a point and shoot film camera, I took a lot of pictures of the inside of my pocket by forgetting to close the aperture.
Can’t look down on someone for getting some good eyeball pictures.
