I've just come across this thread & some of the photos (photo's?) make me shudder.
My current pet hate is when I hear there's instead of there are when referring to something plural. Eg. There's five books on the table.
I seem to hear it so much that I'm wondering if the rules changed & no-one told me.
No, the rules haven't changed, but I think "there're" as a contraction is so clumsy and awkward that people often automatically use "there's".
Photo's, hmm... While "photo" is an abbreviation, the rule as I understand it is that if you wouldn't use an apostrophe to denote omission for the singular (ie photo') then you mustn't for the plural.
But... if you would ordinarily write photo' then you may write photo's with a clear conscience
Simular instead of similar. Really come on!
