Photoshop is amazing. It can turn regular events – like Vladimir Putin popping up in a submarine – into a playground of fun that provides for minutes of entertaining scrolling. But what about the good old days, when a photo was a photo? Some of those were epic too.
1. Mahoosive Chair
This is the world’s largest chair, in the piazza of Manzano, Italy, a city of chair makers where it was created.
2. Sexy Stephen Colbert
No way. If that isn’t Photoshopped then it’s definitely an alien, right? Wrong, it’s just some warped cosplay at Monsterpalooza
3. The anti-gravity man
This is just Chinese artist Li Wei doing his thing…
4. Bubble bursting
5. The very fake looking bear
This doesn’t just look fake, it looks like somebody may have even used MS Paint for the job. It’s real though, we promise, this is Brutus the bear and the
thrill seekers family who keep him as a pet.
6. *Insert really obvious joke here*
There’s only one thing that can give you such disproportionate arms, and if it isn’t Photoshop then it has to be…a world champion arm wrestler.
7. Confused sky
It looks like someone got fed up with all the pollution and threw in some blue sky and mountain tops as a symbol of hope or something. It is in fact the city of Almaty, the former capital of Khazakhstan.
8. The old levitating boat trick
This photo may look like some internet chancer has has just stuck a boat in the sky with the hope of getting a few likes, but it’s actually an example of what happens when your camera’s white balance is off.
Cute and Bambi, though they’ve been dubbed “dog-kangaroos”, are actually dogs, both born with only their rear legs and some serious core muscles.
10. That guy is storming off in a huff – small man syndrome?
Or just a photo from a mountain top that perfectly blends in with the rock below.
11. Pizza in space? Yeah, sure thing…
Yeah, really, get over it alright…
12. Floating drawings…
It kind of looks like a superhero with an invisible cape chasing a bad guy over a hill. Or it could just be a sculpture over at Gibbs Farm, we’re easy either way.
13. “Look at my eyes, look into my eyes…”
Dead Vlei, or “Dead Marsh” is essentially a forest frozen in time. Spooky stuff
Cool eh? Post your own favourites in the comments.
