Sometimes Most Interesting Things Happen in the Background (35 Photos)


You know why The Academy Awards present Oscars to the best-supporting actors? It is because they are the ones who support the main role and makes a story more attention-grabbing. Similarly, there are many important things that frequently happen in the background that makes a photograph more interesting.

We’ve all had pictures that were ruined by unintentional awkward backgrounds. Most of the time, we’re so caught up in the moment that we forget our surroundings. Later, once we’re going through the photos we realize how the backgrounds render our photos completely inappropriate for practically every place out of our phone or albums.  Sometimes it happens intentionally, and sometimes it happens accidentally when a photographer isn’t paying enough attention. Whether intentional or accidental, backgrounds can sometimes make photos much more interesting.


In this post, we have listed 35 photos in which the most interesting things are happening in the background. Scroll on and enjoy peeps!
