Have you noticed how tourists like to help each other out by taking each other's pictures? That way everyone can be in the picture. And with easy digital cameras and phones its pretty easy to do without having in depth knowledge of how each and every camera works.

We thought we had this one sorted - we got ourselves a monopod to attach the camera to - activate the time and away we go.
Sometimes it works.
