Geneva's meme?

Geneva Gets a Meme?

Be careful of the unexpected when taking photos! Occasionally, unwanted people or animals can pop-up in the background! This internet craze, when something unexpected appears in your photo, is known as a meme. Last week, a photo of a Stingray in Grand Cayman, pictured behind innocent, scared bystanders, went viral and received thousands of hits! ( This meme looked like it received a little help from a prankster, but it was a great photo and it received worldwide coverage.

Did you know that Geneva may be developing a photographic meme of its own, too?! It may not be quite as scary as a stingray, or as cute and cuddly as a koala bear, but it’s shaping-up to be a big hit!

Larry the Lad is a swan, and he is known for his lad-ish tendencies around the lake! Not only does he have a penchant for hogging the limelight in photos, he also enjoys chasing the female swans, as well as sneaking a cheeky swig of beer from unattended cups! Consider yourself warned!

Without further ado…Biskotti would like to introduce you to Geneva’s very own meme!

Story of the Week/News from the UN/Photography I grew up in Oxford, England. I have been living in Geneva for about two years and I am always discovering new and exciting things. I studied History at the University of Kent and since then have been specializing in writing and photography. I will be featuring some of my photos on the Biskotti website! I will be writing the feature piece about Geneva as well as a section on News from the United Nations to keep you up to date with international goings on!
