Perfectly Timed Photos That Have Us Doing A Double Take

Capturing the perfect photo is so overrated. Do you know what's better? Accidentally snapping a photo at the right time and place without meaning to. That takes a whole other skill set. So next time you're out and about, walking on the city streets, or sitting in line at the drive-thru, keep your camera at the ready. Your surroundings might surprise you with the most perfectly strange photo — just like these priceless moments.

"Did you just smell my hair?"

Only in a cartoon universe does our sense of smell work this well. Sadly, this person's nose is not actually a vacuum-level sniffer. If it really were that powerful, we dread to think of what would happen to this poor woman's scalp as her wig gets truly snatched.

Santa ditched his reindeer

This is the point in the movie where you'd hear a record scratch and this wise man's voice-over say, "How did I get here? Well, it's a long story." We hope it ends with him gliding safely home to have a big mug of cocoa with Mrs. Claus at the North Pole.

A cry for help

We like to think this guy is a substitute teacher — which can be tough. The job means either putting on a movie for the class to keep them quiet or attempting to get the class to finish an assignment. Here, it looks like our sub tried the latter and sent out a not-too-subtle signal. Morse code is old-fashioned anyway.

Hawk-like precision

Sometimes, catching your reflection while snapping a photo might be a bummer. But in this case, it was totally worth it. While skyscrapers might be too tall for comfort, their height appeals to big old hawks looking for a place to rest. Somehow this person pulled off the most carefully timed reflection picture ever.
