VANCOUVER WOULD BE COOLER IF #226 | Its Tourists Were Given Photo Instructions
(via) Here’s an interesting idea. Miami ad school
snobs grads Mimi Chan and Utsavi Jhaveri were so exhausted by all the bad tourist Instagram photos of San Francisco and New York that they traveled around the cities themselves to discover exactly where the best vantage points were. They then spray-stencilled those spots with foot-outlines and the hashtag #noshittyphotos so that tourists could step up their game. To be honest, we don’t like the idea of everyone taking the same photos, and we like the idea of taking instructions from ad school grads even less. Still, it sure would speed things up in Vancouver, where the Five Sails are all too often Two or Three Sails. No Gastown steam clock shots, though. You can’t stencil on fake cobblestones. You just can’t.
