Link to the list of the 10 most photographed places fails when it is only 5 and makes you click another link to see the other 5

The most photographed places on earth Places where tech-savy people with international data plans tag the most photos, besides your mom's bedroom

There is no freaking way Moulin Rouge is more photographed than the Eiffel Tower, or a museum you have to pay money to enter is photographed more than a free site in NYC. This list is stupid.
 
2014-04-06 02:31:56 PM
a story about a story about a story about photos?

And Monte Carlo is supposedly more popular than all of Asia.

Should have had the unlikely tag.

Well, my mom's bedroom was where fourteen midgets, a Carnival Cruise line employee, two dachshunds, a unicyclist/juggler and I ran a train on subby's sister so. . .

Yeah, I know - she's dead.  That's okay though - I had a shovel.

Best place to take a pic of the Eiffel Tower is from the Tour Montparnasse. Only 14.50 Euros to go up, and you get to see all of Paris and it isn't so crowded. And very easy to find, it's the only other tall structure in Paris besides the Eiffel.

Yeah. -5 on subby for not chasing down the REAL link instead of Huffy using this as an interstitial.

That said, the correct title of this is "The Most Hipster-Photographed Places On Earth."  There's no farking way Cinderella's Castle (any of them) isn't on this and some shiathole in Argentina or Spain is.  And where's Niagara Falls, Big Ben, and street-level selfies in front of Tiffany's in Manhattan?

I don't always understand FARK but when I do, I understand that certain memes are enshrined in a hall of fame.  They are not to be mocked or even trifled with when a 'mitter plays one of 'those' cards.

Never even heard of most of those things. I like how they list half of the article, then link to another site to read the entire article.  Clearly HuffPo is a sponsor.

There's only one rule to keep in mind when traveling: If you don't take photos, it didn't happen.

...What? Maybe friends and family are liking and expressing jealousy over whatever pictures are plastered over a recent Facebook album, but no one cares about the images themselves. Those albums give a quick visual glance about what a person did, and anyone who gives a damn will ask you in person. Nothing wrong with using a camera while visiting, but nothing wrong with simply explaining what the f*ck you did.

I just checked my own pictures, and I have one of the Moulin Rouge and twelve of the Eiffel Tower. So that proves something. Maybe.

Yes - fail to subby for linking to this half-abortion of an article.  Fail to the article for publishing obviously incorrect data.

No Eiffel Tower??!

Presumably there are 13 billion photos taken daily of random mailboxes and street signs in touristy american cities byJapanese tourists. Perhaps they don't take any pics at home?. .

Dafatone: There's a barn that's relevant to this conversation.


No one sees the barn. Once you've seen the signs about the barn, it becomes impossible to see the barn. We're not here to capture an image, we're here to maintain one.

Years ago I worked in a service area on a major toll road, and one day I was out emptying the trash barrels in the parking lot.  There were these two Japanese tourists, laughing their asses off and taking pictures of each other next to...  the trash barrel.

Great Wall of China, Trevi fountain in Rome, Machu Picchu. Eiffel Tower, Big Ben in London...I could go on and on. This list is the suckage..

kpaxoid: Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia, Canada, is the most photographed (and painted) place on earth.


...so say the people of Peggy's Cove. I was in Halifax last summer, and a friend of mine said the same thing.  This is what I told him:

Estimates for peggy's cove are around 1m visitors a year. That's pretty good.  Let's compare that with some other notable Canadian locations:

CN Tower - 2m visitors
Victoria inner harbour - 3m
Banff townsite - 3.4m visitors annually.  Since you're counting a town and not a specific attraction, this counts.

I'm going to wager that every one of these visitors took at least one picture, so your estimate relative to other Canadian destinations is likely off by 2-300%.

Now let's look at other notable sites worldwide:

Chetzen Itza: 1.2m.  And it's in the middle of the jungle.
Angkor Wat: 2m visitors
Eiffel Tower: 7m
Taj Mahal: 10m
Great Wall of China 10m
Pyramids at Giza: 14m

Again, I'm pretty sure that anyone that visits one of these sites takes at least one picture.  So compared to some of the most visited sights in the world, Peggy's Cove is off by an entire order of magnitude.

Still a gorgeous place, though.  I would have figured Lunenberg would be a more popular destination than Peggy's.  I'm partial to Mahone Bay, myself.

They used to say that The Albuquerque Balloon Siesta was the most photographed event but that was when film was still used.

Crappy click-bait. And no Asian places? You know, the home of Canon, Nikon, etc etc.?

I have no problem with Rome, Florence, Paris, Venice, NYC, etc., but the sites they chose in those cities are pretty silly.

For instance, you pay through the nose to get in the Guggenheim, when it is open (closed Thurs). And that is more photographed than Central Park, The Statue of Liberty, or Times Square?

One of the worst articles ever on Fark.

I was in NYC at Christmas and watched at least (seriously) 10,000 photos per minute being taken of the tree at Rockefeller Center.

I would have thought:
Golden Gate Bridge
Charles Bridge in Prague
Old Faithful Yellowstone
Great Wall of China (one particular section in particular)
Sydney Opera House
Big Ben
Eiffel Tower
Statue of Liberty
Pyramids Egypt
Pyramids Mexico
Grand Canyon
Yosemite Valley
Acropolis, Athens
All would have merited inclusion, this list is in no particular order.

I'm sure the Great Wall of China, or anywhere in Tokyo wouldn't make the top 10.

Right.

Some specific bridge in Venice is more photographed than Mt. Fuji.

Uh-huh.
