Picture perfect photos are great, sure. Family portraits can make a wonderful addition to any living room.
But do your photos tell a compelling story? What happens next?
Some photos are peaceful while others are lifeless. Many leave nothing to the imagination, nor do they intend to!
It’s those incredible, unexpected photos that really hit you. If you’re looking for some adventure, you’ve certainly come to the right place.
Check out 75 of the most perfectly-timed photos ever. Seriously, what happens next?!
1. Apocalyptic escape
This looks like footage from an apocalypse movie. Have you seen Train to Busan? What about World War Z? This looks more 2012, honestly. They should make an apocalypse movie called 2020…
2. Hockey puck to the face
Hockey goalies have cat-like reflexes. The puck’s practically impossible to see at all moments of the game. He still hasn’t reacted. This puck’s certainly going to rattle his cage.
3. Water balloon burst
Some water balloons seemingly hold limitless water. But how much water does a typical balloon hold? These two are about to find out… Yeah, that’s a lot of water.
4. Catching food
Catching food in your mouth isn’t easy. I can’t tell if this is a hot dog or a pretzel. The mustard smeared all over her face doesn’t narrow it down, either. You can see it in her eyes… She’s determined to catch the food. You win some, you lose some.
5. Circle of life
A predator’s gotta eat, for better or worse. This fish honestly looks like a piranha. Kudos to the photographer. This is the circle of life in all its awful glory.
Popping a wheelie’s pretty cool. This bike just couldn’t handle it. There goes the front tire… and everything else with it. I’m glad this biker’s wearing a helmet!
He looks right out of the Tour de France. That curb was particularly punishing. I hope he’s okay. I hope the bike’s okay, too.
8. Bird of prey
Birds don’t usually eat humans. But this one’s extra hungry. That’s a pretty frightening sight. That jacket might not be in the best shape anymore.
That cupcake looks scrumptious. I know this dog can agree. I’m salivating just looking at this photo. Do dogs like red velvet flavors?
10. Owl eyes
This kid’s just chilling in his warm hood, enjoying the world. But this owl somehow takes offense. That’s a pretty intimidating bird. As Napoleon Dynamite almost said, “Do the owls have large talons?”
11. Dropping a load
So what we have here is a car falling out of a car. Well, at least a toy car falling out of a “real” car. Hey, toy cars are cars, too! I hope the driver noticed…
12. Jumping for joy
He’s jumping for joy. Why? Well, it’s beach day. Doggo’s excited too. This one’s going to hurt…
13. Keep your eyes on the balls
Contact sports come with their risks. Always keep your eye on the ball. No, not those balls… The game ball! Walk it off, number 16… walk it off.
14. Boxing love
This is a boxing glove. Pow, right in the kisser! This is also boxing love. I hope dad’s okay. His nose took a direct shot.
15. Water fall
Wow, he looks like he’s breaking his fall on the water. He’s simultaneously touching it without breaking the surface tension. Waterfalls are way better than falling in water. Just ask this guy.
16. RIP cake
Who doesn’t love cake? Those eyes say it all. Rest in peace, cake. I’m sure you were delicious.
This is peak photography. Get ready for impact. Do you like ultimate? I kinda wanna play some right now. Also, cool four-leaf clover!
Never play with guns. He’s got a laser weapon and he’s ready to fire. Oh, and he’s pointing it right at you… Watch out.
19. Wedding catastrophe
Weddings ceremonies are lovely affairs. A beautiful dock’s the perfect setting for tying the knot. Unfortunately, this one had a low weight limit. There goes the bride.
20. Ocean waves
I hope she’s okay! That’s a pretty tall order. They say if you gaze deep into the mouth of a giant wave that’s about to destroy you, you can see your life flash before your eyes. She probably wishes she was on her surfboard right about now.
21. Discus dog
This is the short, visual story of the dog and the discus. Dog’s had a rough morning. The tree certainly hasn’t helped. That would have been an easy catch, otherwise.
22. Cork eye
Be cautious around corks. Champagne bottles are deadly! Just ask this guy. I hope his eye’s okay.
23. Broken beer
For some, there’s nothing better than a tall glass of beer. So was it worth it? Totally. They obviously just ordered another beer, no problem.
Party time! Let’s take some photos with our friends! For better or worse, they’re about to be doused in liquor. It’s a great photo, regardless. They’re photogenic despite the mishap.
25. Broken bike
Mechanical malfunctions are the worst. Fortunately, this accident happened in a parking lot. Imagine if it happened on the interstate… Definitely wear a helmet next time!
26. Gatorade congratulations
The Gatorade bath after an important sporting victory is practically an institution. He’s just enjoying his interview until… He might have to take a second bath. Dried Gatorade’s pretty sticky.
Have you heard of Air Jordan? Well, this is Air Playskool! Look at his face. He’s either having the time of his life or scared as hell.
28. Exploding soda
Everybody knows about Mentos and Diet Coke. This is a fun little experiment for the whole family! This young one was not expecting it. He got it right in the face.
29. Volleyball velocity
Watch out! That volleyball’s got some serious velocity. Grandma played volleyball in high school, coincidentally. This one’s going to hurt.
30. Tiger chicken
It’s not every day that you see a chicken on a car. It’s not every day you see a tiger. It’s certainly not every day that you see a tiger on a car… and in the middle of the snow… also on top of a car. I wonder if the chicken got away.
Have you ever fallen into a pond or lake? Sure, it’s surprising. But it’s also exhilarating. Just look at his face. Is that joy or fear?
32. Seagull snack
Humans like ice cream. Do birds like ice cream? Yep, birds like ice cream. I’m not sure this person wants the ice cream anymore, though.
They’re just trying to enjoy the game. The tailgate’s been a blast. But I’m not sure if he’s reacting to the football or he’s just really drunk. This one’s going to hurt…
34. Human Leaning Tower of Pisa
Have you ever been part of a human pyramid? Make sure you have a sturdy base. She definitely didn’t… This one’s going to end poorly. Meanwhile, the dog’s just chilling.
35. ATV falling
ATVs are fantastic fun! But some people aren’t old enough to handle them. Neither of them technically has a license… As an aside, never forget to wear a seat belt!
36. Hawk eyes
Hawks have some seriously sharp eyes. This bird of prey saw the squirrel from miles away. Poor guy. Power lines are obviously unsafe, in general, but usually for different reasons…
37. Mud bath
Few things in life are more genuine than the sheer joy of a child. I wonder what this would look like if the photo was taken two seconds later? Mud. Mud everywhere.
38. Water balloon bonanza
Water balloon fights are tons of fun. It’s essentially a fact. Capturing the exact moment a water balloon explodes isn’t easy. These results are awesome.
39. Curious cat
This cat sure is curious. It’s been trying to capture the laser fairy for eons. She has no idea… I wonder what happens next?
