If you’re like us, you probably saw this picture and let out an involuntary sound of confusion and maybe even fear. Unless you’re looking closely, it really looks like that is one, single creature that is scratching its chin as it looks out the window. It isn’t, thankfully – it’s a woman who is holding a dog on her lap.
All the lines of the face seem to merge perfectly, and the hair is just the right color to interact with both the dog’s face and the shadow that the low light is creating. The ears are almost perfectly in line, and the hand seems to be right at the dog’s face, probably because she’s scratching the dog’s chin or something. Maybe she’s feeding it. Actually, what is her hand doing there?
Animals Don’t Always Like to Be Touched
When you’re at a place with a lot of animals like a zoo or a petting zoo, you might think that they all love to have your attention. Sometimes, though, they just want a day to themselves. They’re a lot like us in that way. For instance, we can look at this picture, which is of a girl at the zoo who really wanted to say hi to this llama.
But the llama wasn’t interested in getting to know her, and responded with a spray of spit. Llamas are actually pretty mean. Even if they like you, they’re probably going to spit on you. This girl’s hair did what it could to shield her, but that’s still pretty gross. Should have gone for the little lamb, little lady.
The Finishing Touch to an Outfit
This guy is a little dressed up for his trip through the subway, and he didn’t even forget his most important accessory: his hat. It might be a picture on the wall or on the window behind him, but he still has it one way or another. Back in the day – and we’re talking about decades ago, here – you wouldn’t dream of stepping outside without a hat on was something that you simply never did.
You ALWAYS had a hat with you, no matter what the weather was, what the temperature was, or what you were heading out for. We don’t know why the public view of headgear has swung so far in the other direction, but hats are far less common now. You’ll still see them around, but the kind of people like this guy are few and far between.
Coming in for a Landing
Photobombing is an art that you have to hone over the years. With the advent of digital cameras, people were given a whole lot more chances to work on their craft. This woman seems to have things figured out when it comes to timing as well as the best way to make her entrance.
Instead of a picture of the guy in the back, the camera focused on the woman who came running in, which is the best way to accomplish a photobomb – it was so successful that even the camera decided she was the focus of the picture and not the guy. He’s too far away for the camera to take a good picture anyway. Maybe this wasn’t everything it was trying to take, but there’s only one subject here.
The Last Time They Ever Saw Her
If you’re looking for a fun way to hurt yourself, nothing will beat a big trampoline in the backyard. Who among us has not wanted to send his or her younger sister shooting over the house with a couple of well-timed bounces? Sure, it might look like a lot of fun, but if you don’t do it the right way, you get a picture like this one.
A little one flipping over the side, feet stuck up in the air and head already out of frame. We hope she’s okay – there’s a chance she might have gotten hurt, but young kids like that are surprisingly resilient. If a forty-year-old man had done that, he probably would have had to just like there for an hour or so before even being able to get back up.
