Anyone can be a decent photographer these days, considering how the quality of cameras in our cell phones seems to get better and better. Even the most mundane of objects can be photographed to look artistic enough to spark conversations and allow us to have a new perspective of the world around us.

This cat was probably just sitting on a garden light to warm his body, but the accidental effect is pretty magical. It looks likes hes’s the protector of a glowing ball of light, ready to pounce on whoever dare try to take it it from him. The fact that he’s black only adds to the mystery.
Have you ever seen what it looks like when two oceans meet?
A Clear Division
The southernmost point of the Chilean archipelago, Cape Horn, marks where the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans meet. Because each body consists of different levels of salt, algae, and silt, as well as two different temperatures, a strange phenomenon occurs. When the weather is calm and has a low flow rate, the waters will slowly mix, which create a literal boundary where the two flows meet.

The Importance Of Cleaning Out Cupboards
This user on Imgur found a forgotten banana lying in a cupboard at his work. After picking it up, he realized it didn’t smell rotten and it was rock hard. It was also shrunken and entirely black. Honestly, it looks like it dehydrated naturally. It might make a good paperweight!

Amazing.” This picture becomes even more satisfying when you think about the freshly washed laundry smell.

This Makes Us So Uncomfortable
Watch out, this is straight form a horror movie. Posters like these were hung all over town, apparently by a woman looking to watch men take a bath in milk! It’s to assume that this woman has a bit of a fetish, but the pictures with her creepy house and nightgown truly make us believe these men went missing after.
This next picture is perfect for wallpaper.

When you first look at this, you would think it’s photoshopped. Considering we have all seen forests, we know that they don’t just arrange themselves like that. Even though this picture is probably color corrected, this photo is actually of an “experimental forest,” that was created by researchers who were trying to study forest density and competition of resources.
If you didn’t think sharks were cute, you’ve been mistaken all along.
A Shark That Glows!
This teeny shark may look like a cartoon character, but we promise it’s more impressive than that. This is a species of lanternshark called Etmopterus lailae. It was found 1,000 feet below the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Hawaii only a few years ago. They use the bioluminescent bellies to identify their mates and attract their prey.
Here’s another spiral for you!

The Reddit user who posted this said, “I was shaking a box of toothpicks and they arranged like this.” The high-quality, close-up of this picture gives it an exquisite feel and definitely left other users feeling confused as to what they were looking at. Some people thought it was a creature from the sea, and other users were just annoyed their trypophobia was triggered.

That’s One Huge Rock
It may be beautiful to live on the mountainside, but that definitely doesn’t mean it’s not dangerous. An Italian farming family discovered this after a landslide caused a boulder to roll down the mountain and smash through their barn. The boulder barely missed their farmhouse and stopped right in front of the vineyard, while a smaller boulder stopped behind the house.

It’s not like you get to meet the Queen of England every day. The woman who took this photo was taking a vacation in Scotland, and went on a walking tour of the Balmoral estate, which just so happens to be the Queen’s favorite place to vacation. Several cars stopped to talk to the tourists, and one of them included Queen Elizabeth!
You may have to be a Private Eye to figure this next one out.
This Or That?

A Reddit user posted this picture, claiming it was a pumpkin-looking grape. Several users thought it was a fusion of several grapes, and others thought it was one large, mutated grape. Some even questioned whether or not it was a grape at all, and not a gooseberry or a tomatillo. The world will never know.

Have you ever cut open a bell pepper and found another, smaller pepper hidden inside? It actually happens quite often. It’s called internal proliferation and is caused by a genetic mutation, but biologists aren’t sure what genes are responsible for it. It sure does make a great picture, though.
The next picture shows how anything can be considered art.

A Reddit user posted this photo of a burnt out lightbulb on subreddit Mildly Interesting. Other users quickly trued to guess what the shapes on the lightbulb looked like. They obviously pointed out the phallic resemblance, as well as other well-known shapes, like the fleur-de-lis. One user even suggested using it as a Christmas ornament.

This person noticed that his growing kitten had two sets of upper fangs in its mouth instead of just one. This just means that all of the birds, mice, and of course, the owner’s hand, are in a world of trouble.
Do any of your pictures looked photoshopped, but really aren’t?
