Photo Shoot!

The past 6 months have taken me to more beaches than I can count. However, whatever beach you are on there are some things that will never change; and that is people trying to capture the perfect picture. I ended up taking up a secret vice of pretending to be asleep on the beach while people tried over and over again to get that one PERFECT picture post to instagram and facebook. It is absolutely hilarious and is totally entertaining watching people do this. They will literally take hundreds of pictures sometimes for up to an hour until they are finally happy. Popular shots include: jumping in the air, lying down as the waves crash in to them, running into the water, selfies of couples kissing each other, I could go on and on. No matter what country you are in you will always see it. This did not happen 20 years ago, we were completely happy taking one posed picture on the beach and that was it but with this whole mass media revolution, things have changed. Be on the look out the next time you go to the beach!

Well I hate to admit, that I turned into one of those tourists when my french friend Marion, whom I met in New Zealand came to spend a week with me on Gili Meno. Hey, what do you expect? I have been traveling alone so I had to take advantage when there was an extra set of hands.

Here are some pics of that perfect shot in the making that of course I posted on facebook and instagram later that day. Duh!
