These 25 Photos Were Accidentally Timed So Perfectly That They’re Brilliant. I Love The Last One.

These 25 Photos Were Accidentally Timed So Perfectly That They’re Brilliant. I Love The Last One.

CULTURE
Capturing the perfect photo can give anyone great satisfaction. (Then again, it's almost better when that perfect photo happens by complete and utter accident.) These 25 photos were accidentally timed so perfectly, they literally couldn't be any better. Even if someone tried, they wouldn't be able to make these pictures more perfect than they are already. I have a feeling #16 is going to make you LOL. 1.) Sit? Stay? Play fetch? Walk on water? This dog can do it all! 2.) Dear Lord, I thank you for all of my fishies. And my adorable face. 3.) Hey, are the girls still looking??? 4.) I'm open man! I'M OPEN! ...
No Matter How Much You Look At These 20 Photos, You Can’t Explain Them. Seriously, #3… What?

No Matter How Much You Look At These 20 Photos, You Can’t Explain Them. Seriously, #3… What?

Entertainment
The 20 images you're about to see are beyond explanation. These completely random and bizarre photos can best be summarized by one phrase: "You just had to be there." It would almost be impossible to deduce why things happened they way they did. Why is that man covered in bread? Is that chimp drunk? What is going on here? (Prepare yourself. Things are going to get a little weird.) 1.) Hey, tigers like hot tubs, too. 2.) ... I can't even... 3.) I think he had a rough night. 4.) Rough day? 5.) Tigger crossed a line. 6.) Is that Bird Man? Or Bread M...

So A Guy Decided To Drive Through West Africa. The Things He Saw Are Almost Unbelievable.

So A Guy Decided To Drive Through West Africa. The Things He Saw Are Almost Unbelievable.

Science
There are a wide variety of cultures and countries in West Africa, from Nigeria through to Senegal, but one thing is the same for them all: life there is very different than life in the United States. Going for a drive through West Africa could result in goat herds, flash floods, vigilantes and danger. One man's collection of photos shows just how alien that life is compared to the Western world. Life in Liberia, post-Civil War, isn't like the US. Here you can see about 15 people jam-packed into a van. Imgur Need to fill up? Often gas is sold in 1 gallon glass jars, which requires siphoning to get into your car. Imgur Daredevil carpoo...

These Photos From Horrifying Crimes Of The Past Were Just Dug Up. And They’re Chilling.

Entertainment
For as long as there have been humans, there has been war, crime and strife. As humans, we are imperfect and sometimes our base nature takes over. It's just hard to believe our ancestors or grandparents would be capable of such things. What you see below are photos that were created from negatives stored at the City Records Center in downtown Los Angeles. These are records of crimes that are decades old (the archives date back to 1925). Merrick Morton, an LA-based photographer and LAPD reserve officer discovered the archive in 2001. His new exhibit displays some of the old crime scene photos... and they will give you chills. Grisly murders aren't a modern discovery. This one dates back to 1934. Merrick Morton / LAPD ...

CULTURE
Whether we like it or not, our eyes can play tricks on us. Even if we know something is an illusion, it's difficult not to be fooled. These optical illusion photos use a technique called forced perspective. Forced perspective is a strategy that photographers use that employs optical illusions to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. A fantasy world can be created by just changing the angle and focus of the subject... and it's amazing. 1.) That little sphinx! 2.) Nooo, not the shoe! 3.) Is he coming or going? 4.) When you go to a big desert, you need a big bottle of water. ...

Photographers know all kinds of tricks to get their images to look exactly how they want. Sure, a lot of it involves some clever uses of Photoshop, but what's even more important is getting just the right timing. And that takes a ton of patience and a seriously keen eye. (But sometimes?

These Are By Far The Best Family Portraits Ever. And There’s Not A Single Human In Them.

These Are By Far The Best Family Portraits Ever. And There’s Not A Single Human In Them.

LIFE
Farm animals get the high fashion photo treatment in Brooklyn based photographer Rob MacInnis' series, "Farm Family." The incredible photos are staged to mirror the likes of Annie Leibovitz and could easily fill the pages of Vogue, Rolling Stone or Vanity Fair. Except for the fact that they're all cows, sheep and various other barnyard animals. The stylized photography is meant to make the viewer take a closer look not just at the beautiful animals themselves, but also at our society's preoccupation with consumerism in both the food and media industries. The close-ups at the end will especially get to you. Just seeing each of these animals' soulful eyes staring back at you will tug all of your heartstrings. And maybe make you re-examine your own consumerism. ...
