    Propping up the Tower: a photo opportunity?

    As soon as you arrive in the Campo dei Miracoli you will spot them. Dotted around the Leaning Tower are pairs of people, one with a camera and one a short distance away. The photographer will be calling: “left a little … no, right … back up a bit … hand a bit higher”. Their friend will be shuffling around, trying to follow the instructions while avoiding everyone else doing the same thing. And what are they all doing? They are trying to capture the classic “joke” shot – “How I held up the Leaning Tower with one hand and stopped it from falling”. It’s corny, but almost everyone has to have a go.

    And did we join them? Check out photo 2 ;-)

    So don't you feel embarrased by making funny positions to get a nice shot. Of course people look at you when you are posing but just remember that there are a lot of people doing the same thing in the same moment!

    Unique Suggestions: smile and act like you don't care!

    Had to be done...I didn't spend too much time setting it up as I was quite embarressed even to be attempting it. My only consolation was that countless people were doing the same thing.

    Pretty silly, isn't it?

    Many people take pictures of trying to push the Leaning Tower. I wonder who came up with this that is making everyone do it? It's definitely pretty silly. :)
