An Instagrammer couple has been heavily criticized for documenting one of their travels with a dangerous photo.
Kelly Castille and Kody Workman, collectively known as @Positravelty, shared the image of their vacation in Ubud, Bali, where Workman was seen holding Castille as she hung off the edge of a pool.

🇺🇸 Our greatest strength in life, our most important principle, is discernment. Only you can know your body, feel the space around you and understand your capabilities. We would all do well to remember this, knowing that not every action, style or path we witness through others is or should be, replicated. At the end of the day we are to hold ourselves accountable for the decisions that we make. ※ 🇵🇦 La mejor fortaleza en la vida, el moral más importante, es discernimiento. Solo puedes entender tu cuerpo, sentir el espacio que te rodea y comprender tus capacidades. Haríamos bien en recorder este, sabiendo que no toda acción, estilo o camino que presenciamos por otros es o debe ser, replicado. Al final del dia, somos responsables de las decisiones que hacemos. ※ Thank you @kayonjungleresort for an unforgettable experience! ※ ※ #balitravel #couplesgoals #ilovetravel #bestplaces #baligasm #ubud #balitravel #novios #junglelife #viajeros #wetravel #travelinspo #adventurous #indonesiaparadise #speechlessplaces #infinitypool #welltraveled #earthpix #baliholiday
The photo, which amassed over 20,000 likes, has since been flooded with comments by worried followers calling them “irresponsible.” One Instagram user, for instance, labeled the duo “stupid” for risking their lives for one post.
However, the couple defended themselves by saying that they were confident to do the shot because of two reasons: should anyone fall, they would be supported by a pool that was cropped out for dramatization purposes; they had considered “angles and potentials” before taking the photo.
This isn’t the first time bloggers have been criticized for taking dangerous photos. Recently, a Portuguese couple was called out for a risky image, where one of them had leaned out of a moving train.
