I think the fact that we’ve only gotten low quality pics is reaaaallllyyyyy interesting. Because they’re so lq, I’m tempted to believe they were taken from far away.
Yesterday there were rumours (albeit by an update account claiming to be there) that all the paps were stopped and made to delete their photos of the boys, whether they were paid for them or not idk. But now that we have these, I figure this pap was far enough away that the boys team didn’t know they were there.
The fact that there was an article claiming that only Niall and Harry were on the boat is also interesting, as is the rumour that Zayn, Liam, and Louis were either at a pool or at Disney…. And that the only other pap photos we got were Harry and Niall with fans, which entirely support those claims.
I think it goes to show how much a situation can be manipulated. I think it’s clear that they didn’t want us to know that all the boys were together, and they def didn’t want us to know that the boys were smoking.
