20 Pictures You Won’t Believe Are Real
Sometimes we stumble across a picture and think that it MUST be photoshopped and never find out if it was. Well, here we have gathered 16 of the most amazing photos that will trick you into thinking they’re fake, only to surprise you coming out as real.
1) When a bench is not enough…
We get it, you need to do stretching and you are the nonconformist of the group, so you HAVE to do it “special”. What better way than spread, over your back, between two walls? None, probably.
2) INDOOR CLOUD
I know, this picture looks fake AF, but trust me when I say it’s real and it’s actually one of the works of Berndnaut Smilde who experiments with humidity conditions and room temperatures in order to create clouds in closed spaces.
3) JEWEL CORN
No, these aren’t real pearls photoshopped on a corn. These corns are totally real and they’re the result of a genetically modified corn plant.
4) CROSSED GRID WAVES
This is not the result of an amazingly accurate photoshop session, even if it’s hard to believe.
It’s simply nature in one of her incredible expressions: these are cross sea waves seen from the Island of Ré.
5) Have you ever wished the Earth would swallow you whole?
Well I have, and sometimes I really wished my house was right on that corner. Anyway this is a sinkhole, a phenomena that happens when the reinforcing spot of an area of terrain, suddenly collapses, like an archtop.
6) NAMIB DESERT RIVER BED
I know, it looks like an alien planet right? Well it isn’t. Its photographic representation of the Sossusvlei Riverbed, that dried out long ago. We humans still don’t know why these dunes have these shapes…
7) FLAMINGO FLOCK IN THE SHAPE OF A FLAMINGO
Nature never forgets how to surprise us in the most magnificent ways, and even if National Geographic was trolling us we couldn’t but be stunned by this spectacular image.
8) Zumba Fitness Madness.
Look at the effort on her face. It proves that she is really throwing everything she’s got into her practice. Good on her.
9) RED ROSE IN BLACK AND WHITE ENVIRONMENT
One could watch this picture and undoubtedly state that this is a post-processed picture when it’s actually a real picture. This rose managed to blossom immediately after a volcano erupted in the area, creating this amazing contrast.
10) FEET IN WOOD
This buddhist monk prayed for many, many years in exact same spot, and for that reason his feet molded the wood that adapted to the shape of the feet.
11) A FISH WITH SPOOKY HUMAN TEETH
If this isn’t a great photoshop job, it must be a malformation… Well, no. This fish really exists, and it really has humanlike teeth. It’s also edible but you’ll never see me around one of these things.
12) PINK LAKE
This is a real lake, called Lake Setba, it finds itself in Senegal and it is really pink. The color is given by a pigment that is produced by the “dunaliella salina”, a bacteria that consumes salt in order to stay alive. Since the salinity of the lake is very elevated, this is the natural consequence.
13) These two stunners.
This is funny… Apparently I’m not able to distinguish if the left one is too short, or if it’s the right one who’s too tall… Probably both, right?
14) STAIRWAY TO HELL
Even if this looks like an artistic modern vision of the entrance of hell, this is really a subway station in Sweden. Not the first time the swedish surprise us with these ideas.
15) LEGO CITY
This picture looks like a screenshot from Legoland or from a Lego videogame anyway. The reality, though, is much different. It’s a housing complex in the Mexican town of San Buenaventura. Wow!
16) The “Fantastic 4” replacement you asked for is here!
This girl seems like she’s holding the most excruciating pain ever. She smiles, but we can see that is a fake smile. She’s dying inside and probably thinking “TAKE THIS DAMN PICTURE ALREADY!!!”
19) A great way to hurt themselves.
Everybody’s got to suffer at least one serious summer injury in their lifetime, and these girls definitely look like they’re setting up a nice combo…
20) The perfect way to distract your opponent.
So yeah, now you know how to get a hold on your opponent’s attention. The thing is that if you manage to score a point in this position than you deserve to win the world…
