20-things-taken-from-such-an-angle-and-in-such-a-form-in-which-you-have-hardly-ever-seen-them

Sometimes, in order to surprise us, it is enough just to photograph a thing that has long been familiar to us from an unusual angle. And sometimes things familiar to us take on an unusual look, in which we never expected to see them. Both cases are very interesting, but where can you see them? Of course here! How about natural blue bread, black eggs, or the sudden comparison of the foot of an elephant and a human? Already interested? It's only the beginning! Unusual views of natural sites and world sights await you, as well as things that we hope you will find unexpected.

 

This bread was dyed with the pulp of the American genipa, a South American fruit that the locals often used to paint their skin.

06-20-32-16232599611076461434

This fruit contains the organic compound genipin, which, upon contact with proteins (such as from skin or milk), oxidizes and turns from colorless to dark blue.

What do beetles see crawling under a dandelion

Abandoned hotel on the road in Switzerland

06-20-32-1623259963689820000

The Belvédère began to languish in the 1960s with the development of cars that became much faster and more powerful. The hotel was designed for rest on the road, but if earlier the trip through the pass took 2-3 days, then later it turned into a 1-day trip there and back.
