The 35 Most Perfectly Timed Photos You Will Ever See

It takes a special kind of luck to snap a photo that is so perfectly timed that it looks either hilarious or disastrous, or maybe both. You don’t have to be a professional photographer to take a photo like this; it’s all about the timing. Sometimes the best photos are the ones you never meant to take.

Yes, sir, my dog always looks like this.

The headless horseman, or....the horse-headed man?

Just the usual morning alien swim.

When people look a bit too much like their pets.

A refreshing hat.

Humpback whales lunge out of ocean.

Bird’s eye view.

That bowtie? With those shoes?

Force of habit.

This aquapark looks fun.

A classy train ride.

The curious monkey.

Now that’s looking death right in the face.

Always bring a fire breathing dog to the party.

All is lost.

That’s one wave I wouldn’t want to surf.

As long as they’re all having fun...

A true love tail.

Fizzy science.

This merman doesn’t look right.

You know, just walking on water. The usual.

A cat-erpillar.


A moment of pure joy.

Probably not the best time to be yawning.

Big splash coming in one... two...

Headfirst into serenity.

Congratulations, it’s a girl!
