It's true to say that the best photographs tell a complete story of their own. They're the images that we frame and put on the wall to share with the world.
However, there is another type of photo—it's the photo that shows something interesting and unusual, yet it's not clear to the viewer what exactly the story is. Those pictures need a little helping hand.
That's what we have for you today: A bunch of interesting images that just need a little explaining to make sense. So come and enjoy them with us now.
1. Wandering Forever On The Seas
This little pebble has a certain resemblance to a ghost. It was found by someone on a beach after possibly an eternity in the waves.
2. Zapping Yourself Can Leave A Trace
This print pattern on a car door was caused by someone getting a static electricity shock which then pulled the dust into this unusual shape.
3. The Toad In The Hole
Well, this is a frog, not a toad—but the principle is the same. This particular frog lives in a hole in the wall of a Reddit user's garden.
4. How The Mighty Have Fallen
This is quite an amazing find, it's an entire large chunk of a real brick wall which has been smoothed and reshaped in the ocean.
5. You May Need To Look Twice
This is a phone stood up in a chair pocket. What makes it interesting, of course, is the way that the reflection makes the phone appear transparent.
6. Securing Your Dairy Products Is A Serious Matter
We know that it's often frustrating when somebody else steals your food or drinks at work, but we're not sure that this is the appropriate response to it.
7. Goats That Grow On Trees
Money may not grow on trees, but these Morrocan goats do. This is a common sight in the country. The goats love the fruit of the Argania tree and are willing to go to any lengths to get it.
8. The Moment Of Crushing Disappointment
Here we have a lovely scene of a pleasant patio set on a beautiful lakeside, what could go wrong? The moment when you realize this is the outdoor seating for a McDonald's.
9. The Leaning Krumholtz Tree
This Krumholtz tree has a very unusual shape indeed. It appears that long exposure to constant strong winds is what caused this to take place.
10. The Coolest Students Ever
This is Canada and it's cold in Canada. Students at this school in Ottawa are taking their examinations in an ice hockey rink. That's cool, right?
11. The Contrasts Of Colorado
The first photograph (on top) was taken just 48 hours before the second one (on the bottom). It shows just how dramatically the weather changes in Colorado.
12. The Ancient Pressed Butterfly
This book is over 200 years old and the first time it was opened in recent times, they found this perfectly preserved pressed butterfly inside it.
13. The Tree With A Solid Grip
This is a fascinating insight into the power of nature. Here we have a tree holding up some rocks from a wall which has long since collapsed.
14. The Tree Pot
This tree, as you can see, was clearly planted into a pot much smaller than it was intended for. In response, its roots have coiled up tightly.
15. Shadows Made Of Snow
The tree's shadow has prevented snow from melting on this rooftop, leaving a shadow made entirely of snow. It looks quite amazing, doesn't it?
We hope that you enjoyed the explanations to go along with these great images and that they made you smile.
