Bored with taking the same, tired poses at monuments on their trip to Egypt in 2010, Alla Shubina and her husband began tinkering with perspective to create clever, funny photos. They left Egypt with some memorable pictures and the start of a new travel tradition.
"The tour guides take you to certain areas to take pictures, like half an hour at the same place. You don't want to get bored with your pictures," said Shubina, a Ukrainian native living in New Jersey. "This brings a little bit of change and fun to picture taking."
