15-unique-photofacts-about-everything-in-the-world-that-you-should-learn-to-broaden-your-horizons

Sometimes you can learn a lot of useful things from the Internet by simply leafing through pictures.  In this post Bemorepanda collected different facts about everything that will help broaden our horizons, as well as distract for a couple of minutes from the routine. 


 1. In 2016, a Chinese businessman Xiong Shuihua demolished all the houses in his native village and built villas in their place.  

2. You would be confused to see such a door in your entrance for the first time.  This is just a drawing with an optical illusion. 

3. The Varani people live in Ecuador.  After lengthy litigation, they won a case against an oil company claiming their land.  In the photo, members of the Amazon tribe in the courtroom.

4. In 2015, Ford installed wide-angle front and rear 1-megapixel cameras on its cars that allow "seeing from around the corner."  The problem of "blind" zones has been solved.

5. Animal rights advocates have figured out how to protect elephants from poachers: they painted the animal tusks with pink paint, which is marked with banknotes in banks.  It does not harm the animal, but it is impossible to wash it off.  Buyers do not need such tusks. 

6. Does it look edible?  In fact, in the photo there is not grapes, but a mineral called "grape chalcedony".

7. This is the cross sea.  It looks like this because of wave systems moving at different angles. 

8. This is a tree called Jabuticaba (or Brazilian grape tree).  Its fruits grow directly from the bark. 

9. The guy took off the lightning for 2 hours and then combined all the frames in one.

10. City in Peru around the oasis in Huacachina.

11. In the Congaree National Park, the water in the lake turns different colors at a certain temperature.

12. Blacks couples born white baby.  No, the DNA test confirmed that the spouses are the biological parents of the baby.  Perhaps these are white dormant genes or mutating albinism.

13. Scientists have tracked eagle movements using GPS for 20 years.  Here are his flights.

14. Trace after a needle prick on the skin, taken with a microscope.

15. This is how entrants of the GITIS acting faculty are evaluated in the era of coronavirus.

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.

 

Summit of the Great Pyramid of Giza

Black Eggs from Sulfur Valley Owakudani, Japan

06-20-32-1623259962484142885

These are ordinary hard-boiled chicken eggs in natural hot water pools. The sulfur in the water makes the egg shells black and also gives it a specific smell.

 

Many have seen a photograph of a group of construction workers eating lunch at a high altitude, sitting on a beam. On the left, you can see photographer Charles Ebbets taking this picture.

06-20-32-16232599621461590141

One of the most famous photographs in the world, "Lunch on a Skyscraper" was taken in 1932. 

 

Compare the structure of the bones of the foot of a person and the foot of an elephant

You can see the adult version of the alpaca just above its skinny body.

 

What do beetles see crawling under a dandelion

06-20-32-1623259962821290771

The illusion of an underwater cliff at Le Morne Braban, Mauritius

06-20-32-16232599621836963685

Le Morne Braban is a peninsula on the southwestern tip of the island of Mauritius.

 

If you stand under the Eiffel Tower and look up, then it resembles a kaleidoscope

06-20-32-16232599621466796378

Such a spectacle can only be seen in the evening, when the tower burns like a Christmas tree.

 

On May 18, 1980, an earthquake caused by volcanic activity caused the largest recorded landslide on Mount St. Helens, followed by an eruption that claimed 57 lives. Photos of St. Helens before and after the disaster

Looking at the photo, the illusion is created that the other end of the rope is not tied to anything. 

 

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. People stopped staying at the hotel and had to close it.

 

Extremely rare view of the Statue of Liberty from the balcony located on its torch

06-20-32-1623259964565235965
