Wordless Wednesday – The Photo Bomb


Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!

The Photo Bomb

If you are someone who blogs about pets – or someone who reviews products and lives with pets – chances are, you have encountered the photo bomb.

For the uninitiated, a photo bomb can be defined as a verb:

To spoil a photograph of (a person or thing) by unexpectedly appearing in the camera’s field of view as the picture is taken, typically as a prank or practical joke

Or as a noun:

A photograph that has been spoiled by the unexpected appearance of an unintended subject in the camera’s field of view as the picture was taken

Either way, the end result is the same: the photographer is left with a picture that reflects a surprising and unintended result!

When you live with cats, unintended results become a part of your everyday norm. “Expect the unexpected” – the famous catch-phrase from the reality television show, Big Brother – becomes a mantra you live by.

This is not necessarily a bad thing. Surprises keep you on your toes and they often bring with them a ray of sunshine and unexpected joy!


So awhile back – out of the blue – my blender unexpectedly died (at the most inopportune time, I might add!) After much research, I decided to take the plunge and treat myself to a Vitamix like I’d been dreaming of for years. What incredible machines they make! They slice. They dice. They do everything except wash my windows and make my bed!

But I digress.

On the big day when my package arrived, I decided to take a ton of photos, including a few of the original packaging in case I wanted to review it down the line.

Sensing my excitement, Magellan (who often likes to see me beg, plea and cajole him into cooperation when I need to photograph him with a cat-related item, but insists on being front and center on the food and kitchen related photos that would be more appropriate for him to sit out on the sidelines for) appeared out of nowhere and practically slid into these photos, giving new meaning to the word photo bomb!

Magellan appreciates the finer things in life. It appears that if Vitamix is ever looking for a feline spokesperson with star quality to represent their brand, I have found them their cat!
