Photos – no apostophe

This is becoming one of my pet hates 🙂

There seems to be an increase in the number of people using an apostrophe when writing about photos – that it, people writing photo’s instead of photos.

“I will bring my photo’s to show you”

What do the photos own? NOTHING! So there is no need for an apostrophe to be there and it annoys pedants like me when it is there!

I’m struggling to think of situations where anyone would talk about photos owning anything so it’s probably fairly safe to say that photos should never have an apostrophe added!

And given that adding an apostrophe is actually more work, I don’t see the appeal myself!
