List Rules Upvote the most cliche photos from all your Facebook friends' world travels.

The first thing that a lot of people think about when they decide to go on a trip, be it abroad or to one of America’s many tourist destinations, is all the great photos they’ll be taking. Pictures are a great way to remember your halcyon weeks away from work, when you got to hang out with your friends and just be a tourist (sometimes it can be really fun). But to be honest, everyone is tired of seeing the same photos pop up in their Facebook and Instagram feeds. Why is everyone okay with taking such cliché tourist photos? Everyone loves Abbey Road, but there’s nothing cool about a photo of you and your friends walking across a street. You can see that any day. This list is full of classic tourist photo clichés - do your best to try and avoid them.

If you’ve yet to go on a big trip, you should study the cliche tourist photos on this list so you don’t make the same mistake as everyone else in the world that’s been to Paris (or where ever it is that you’re going). You don’t want to be the millionth person to have a photo of you kissing under the Eiffel Tower. Might we suggest taking a selfie with a croissant that’s as big as your head for a refreshing change of pace? The photos on this list are classic, and it makes sense that people want to have their own versions of them. But they’re old hat, so think outside the box the next time you’re taking photos on a road trip.
