In our modern world, photography is more ubiquitous than it has ever been. No matter where you go, you’re surrounded by cameras. Whether on cell phones, tablets, computers, CCTV, or even good old fashioned video cameras, there’s a chance that this very moment is being captured.
While we worry about overstuffing our Facebook pages and even legitimate privacy concerns, the biggest and most obvious affect this overabundance of cameras has had on the world is that we can and will capture nearly every interesting activity or event that occurs. No action, however small, can escape the gaze of the lens.
This brings us to today’s topic: perfectly timed photos. When cameras are trained in every direction in every moment, the odds of capturing something just right are always increasing. The massive collection of photos we’ve shared below prove this beyond a doubt. These are some of the most hilariously, touchingly, and surprisingly perfectly captured photos of all time.
1- Caught By Buddha
A tourist visiting this Buddhist shrine just happened to catch the exact moment when the enlightened one himself captured a passing jumbo jet by the tail. With his peaceful nature, we imagine everyone landed safely.
2- Photobombed By A Shark
Just when you thought it was safe to take another selfie, this happens. We assume the intrepid photographer was unharmed, or this image would have gone down with the ship, so to speak.
3- Fish Head
In this perfectly timed photo, we see a fish strategically pass right by a snorkeler’s head, creating a strange new hybrid for a brief moment.
