In the age of Pho­to­shop, it is hard­ly pos­si­ble to sur­prise any­one with an unusu­al pho­to, when every sec­ond pic­ture can be processed and fal­si­fied. Not sur­pris­ing­ly, peo­ple have become skep­ti­cal about what they see in pho­tographs. Sur­pris­ing­ly, all the pho­tos in this col­lec­tion are real.

ship on the rock

In 1910, the steam­er Princess SS crashed into the coast of Sen­tinel Island. The ebb tide exposed the entire hull of the ship, frozen in a rather unusu­al posi­tion on the shore.

floating sideways

The artist Philippe Ram­ette put his feet on the wall of the trans­verse bal­cony and tried his best to stay on the water. You can clear­ly see the ten­sion in his face and hands, but he did very well and looked quite nat­ur­al.

Stockholm metro

The Stock­holm Metro has 100 sta­tions, 53 of which are above ground. Swe­den decid­ed to turn them into art gal­leries, and now it’s easy to con­fuse the sta­tions with some futur­is­tic muse­um. This is one of the most out­stand­ing attrac­tions in Stock­holm.

Heavenly Buddhists

The water­falls of Pun­gur Dalat in Viet­nam look like clouds in the sky. The whole unre­al­i­ty of the pic­ture is empha­sized by a group of Bud­dhist monks cross­ing the water­falls, as if it were just an illu­sion.

Attack of the bees

The body of this man is lit­er­al­ly cov­ered with thou­sands of bees that bom­bard him. One can only hope that he is not aller­gic to bee stings, one of the most painful insects in the world.

demon eyes

Fire exudes such destruc­tive pow­er that some­times it seems as if it is a prod­uct of the dev­il him­self. But those sin­is­ter red eyes are just a com­bi­na­tion of red fire against heavy black smoke.

Whale carcass

The tragedy of this pho­to­graph is that it is not some mys­te­ri­ous sea mon­ster, but sim­ply a decom­pos­ing whale car­cass.

small boxes

This city is not a chil­dren’s con­struc­tor made of Lego blocks. This is the real com­plex of San Bue­naven­tu­ra in Mex­i­co City.

Source Grand Prismatic

It may seem that some­one just spilled paint and got such a pic­ture. In fact, this spring in Yel­low­stone Nation­al Park looks like this because of var­i­ous bac­te­ria that vary in col­or depend­ing on the tem­per­a­ture. Yel­low­stone is a real mir­a­cle of geol­o­gy.

pink lake

Lake Ret­ba is locat­ed in Sene­gal and is so rich in salt that it is home to Dunaliel­la bac­te­ria, which gives the water such a col­or­ful pink hue. All these beau­ties have already been writ­ten about on Life­Globe many times, so fol­low the links for more detailed infor­ma­tion.

Barbie Man

Vale­ria Lukyano­va want­ed to be like Bar­bie so much that she decid­ed to have plas­tic surgery. With the help of a knife, Vale­ria turned her­self into a super real­is­tic human Bar­bie. Indeed, a strik­ing resem­blance…
