It is difficult to believe by looking at these pictures that all of them were in orphan houses and nobody cared about them. It is hard to believe that they looked completely different… Look the way they were when their adoptive parents saw them for the first time. A little time has passed and now these boys and girls are unrecognizable! It’s a real miracle…
It happens sometimes that when people take pictures they see some faces or something that slightly resembles a human silhouette etc. on them later. And of course, the first thing they say – it’s a ghost! Well, I’m not an expert, but as for me, I think that it is just the coincidental effect of darkness and light which combined together gives this optical illusion. Plus pareidolia (e.g. seeing images of animals or faces in clouds) plays a big role in it.
Pulpit Rock is situated in Norway. It’s a massive cliff of 1982 feet above Lysefjorden. There is a trail from the Pulpit Rock lodge through different mountain landscapes, which are splendid. You can get a gig adrenaline dose too at this height.
One Argentinean family had a very interesting idea. They made one picture per year of themselves. The first photographs were taken back in 1976. It is interesting to see how they change physically over the years.
Here’s a great selection with firefighters, cops etc who don’t do their job good ;) Of course, the most part of it is tricked but still, very funny. We’ve posted recently another series of pictures about Military humor, if you didn’t see it, you should really check this out ;)
Mother Nature has given these animals the gift to be “invisible” at the right moment. Some of them need it to hide from predators, others, on the contrary – hunt. Look attentively at these pictures, it is really difficult to spot some of them ;)
Thousands of tourists saw a mirage of very high clarity which lasted four hours off the shore of Penglai city in China. The mist rose on the shore and created an image of a modern city with high rise buildings, wide city streets, fast moving cars, and crowds of people all over the place. The detail was very visible. Experts explained that a mirage is formed when moisture in the air becomes warmer than the temperature of sea water, which refracts rays of sunlight to create reflections of the landscape in the sky.
Stars are always looking good during the special events, on TV or on the covers. But there’s another side of the medal. Here’s how some celebs look like without make-up or “Photoshop”. More pics after the jump.
The whale shark, Rhincodon typus, is a slow moving filter feeding shark that is the largest living fish species. It can grow up to 18 m. in length and can weigh up to 21 tonnes (15 short tons). The whale shark is a filter feeder — one of only three known filter feeding shark species (along with the basking shark and the megamouth shark). It feeds on phytoplankton, macro-algae, plankton, krill and small nektonic life, such as small squid or vertebrates. This species, despite its enormous size, does not pose any significant danger to humans. It is a frequently cited example when educating the public about the popular misconceptions of all sharks as "man-eaters". They are actually quite gentle and can be playful with divers.
The Siege of Leningrad, also known as The Leningrad Blockade was a prolonged military operation by the Axis powers to capture Leningrad during World War II. The siege lasted 872 days from 9 September 1941, to 27 January 1944. The Siege of Leningrad was one of the longest and most destructive sieges of major cities in modern history. The pictures that you are going to see are modern pictures superimposed on the pictures from back then, but the places and angle of view are exactly the same.
