The Play on Perspective:
The most famous example of the Perspective pose is "leaning" up against the Leaning Tower of Pisa. However, simple distance and careful body positioning can lead to many things, such as having a fountain pour into your mouth or holding a building in the palm of your hand. Time spent arranging the shot usually holds up pedestrian traffic and makes you look idiotic, though. We got a little creative with this one.

The Statue Interaction:
It's such a frat pose, to put your arm around a statue of a famous poet or politician like you just returned from traveling back in time to get total drunkers with the real version of this piece of carved marble. In reality, it's still an inanimate object and you're probably getting very dirty all up on it like that.

The Vulgar Vulture:
Boys and their weens, always hunting for opportunities to make stupid-funny photos to post to Facebook. A popular example of a vulgar shot is doing anything to the balls of the Wall Street bull, or standing in front of a fountain so it appears as though you're urinating. While fun, all evoke the question, "seriously?"
