When life gives you lemons, whip out your camera and snap a photo. Sometimes things happen that are just too perfect for words and irony is king for the day. We have scoured the Internet for some of the most perfectly-placed photos to have ever been taken. These are the times when a higher power shines down to give us a little giggle at the perfect coincidence taking place before our eyes.
The following slideshow will inspire you to keep those eyes open and look for the next moment to add to the following 30 photos of perfectly timed coincidences ever captured.
1. Here's Cosette!
Even though Les Miserables and The Shining are anything but uplifting, they still couldn't be any more different. But this placement is simply perfect.
2. Taylor Is Everywhere
To think this magic image would have just been two random semi-trucks driving down the highway if the world had not given us Taylor Swift.
3. Chec Hairlines
This poor bald guy happened to be booked with the wrong airline at the very wrong time. Next time he should fly the friendly skies with "Britis Hairways."
4. Aliens Ahead
It's like placing a deer crossing sign on the road knowing that is where the deer will choose to cross. Take me to your leader up ahead.
5. No, You Don't
That bridge must have been shorter. The truck made it pretty far before getting stuck. The slogan "we go the extra mile" couldn't be more perfect.
6. Fell Street
The sign is on the corner of Fell and Irony. Take a "down" at the corner and you'll be right where you need to be.
7. UN-Involved In Peace
Considering the number of conflicts there have been since the inception of the United Nations, this perfect photo could not be any more UN-poetic.
8. No Points For Second Place
How do you like that? Talk about the lottery just blatantly slapping you in the face for your number choices. Please say they weren't random number picks.
9. Baby's Got Problems
It's a rough life with all of that napping, pooping the diaper, and being held and cuddled all day. Baby just needs a nice break.
Let these two sit next to each other without any clue of how amazing their jackets are together. It's more fun to enjoy this moment brought to you by the letters J, A, and the number 5.
11. Storybook Ending
Once upon a time there was a BMW and a Volkswagen parked next to each other outside of my house, and it was really funny...
12. That's A Super Coincidence
Something tells us these two small local restaurants rarely have plumbing problems and they are absolutely sick of mushrooms on their pizza at this point.
13. What Cheap Shoes?
No wonder those shoes are only $1.99, there's nothing there! Jokes on them, invisible shoes are going to be worth millions of dollars.
14. What A Scam
The web developer must have had a bad day. Is it really considered a scam if they admit it? Those gloves look pretty legit to us.
15. I Think It's Broke
It would be even funnier if this accident were Mike's Hard Lemonade-related, but we all know no one drinks Mike's Hard Lemonade.
16. Letting The Waves Go By
You have to wonder whether this model had to pose for this shot a few times (and get soaking wet) or whether this was a moment of perfect timing? Either way, it was worth it, wasn't it?
17. Sensational Spray
This shot of a bucket of water being emptied is absolutely incredible. To get the shutter timing on the camera right for this is an act of real skill.
18. Gecko Get Together
To catch this photograph of a gecko in mid-air leaping to its friend must have taken an incredible amount of patience and/or luck.
19. Super High Five
Not only did the photographer capture the high-five, he also managed to get the shark's smile in mid-frame. Now that's timing.
20. Battle Star
To get not one but both guns blazing on a battleship in perfect synchronicity requires not just photographic skill but incredible skill on the part of the ship's crew.
21. The Calm Before The Splash
The water here is so still and calm that it's impossible that this shot wasn't made on the first attempt which is an absolutely amazing moment of timing.
22. Fish Man
Underwater snaps aren't so common, so moments of great timing like this don't come along very often. We wonder what fish man's superpower would be?
23. Butterfly Boy
This is wonderful - it's nice to see that the boy is happy with his butterfly companion and not scared of it. This won't happen every day and rarely in front of a camera.
24. Is It A Bird, Is It A Plane?
We think it's a ball, actually. This dog looks absolutely transfixed as his master's toy comes flying towards him, the photographer must have been doing cartwheels of joy when they saw this image.
There's a yawn and there's another yawn. Maybe dogs yawn when they see other dogs yawn, just like humans do? Who knows? This is a super image, though.
26. It's A Hat Trick
No, not three football goals, but this wonderful levitating bowler hat, neatly supplied by the station wall outside the window. What a happy coincidence for the photographer.
27. It Must Be Love
This is just an amazing coincidence, but how lucky are we that there was a photographer there to capture the moment? This would make for a great Valentine's card.
28. Breaking Through
Not only did this require lightning reflexes to shoot, but it also must have required a fair amount of courage to stay still to take the shot as that face broke through the waves.
It's hard to imagine a better moment to have captured in this scene than the exact time that the first drop of water lands of the dog's tongue like this.
This can't have been any fun for the star of the shot, but what an amazing image. To get the moment of impact from that angle is fortunate for the photographer if not for the skater.
This has been a reminder to keep your eyes peeled for other perfect coincidences. They are all over the place!
