Holidays are cringe. They're supposed to be fun but, more often than not, they're a tormenting fortnight of toe-curling awkwardness. And, to make matters worse, there's usually someone on the holiday who can't stop taking photos.
Not content with just letting the awkwardness disappear on the breeze, these people will whip out their camera at every available opportunity and capture the moments forever. The forced smiles, the matching outfits, the weird poses; embarrassing memories documented for keepsake, an ever-growing archive for future historians to laugh at.

Before the internet and smartphones, of course, these awkward incidents were kept safe and secure in your mum's photo album. But, thanks to Sir Tim Berners-Lee, we now live in a world where these spectacularly awkward moments can spread quickly and easily around the globe.
