Pictures That Show The Unseen Side Of Things

As humans, we haven’t seen close to half of what the entire world has to offer. There are so many things that go unnoticed in daily life that require a different perspective that we usually aren’t seeing. Thankfully, there are images like these that we can all enjoy from someone else’s perspective. Some of these things were hidden from view, while others were right in front of us, just waiting for someone with enough curiosity to discover.

Have you ever wondered how the actors in a car movie know how to drive that well? Well this is how they did it in Baby Driver. While viewers were shown the actor controlling the vehicle, the real driver of the car was on top the entire time.

Even if you assumed the actor wasn’t really controlling the car, we bet you probably thought that the production crew used green screen effects– but nope.

Most of us don’t see an artichoke until it ends up on the grocery store shelves, or on our plate! Here’s a look what artichokes look like when they’re planted in the ground and bloom instead of being harvested.

Would you ever guess that a purple flower this bright would grow out of an artichoke? It’s so beautiful, you might want to plant one in your own backyard and watch it bloom… or eat it!

What does a blue whale’s blowhole look like? Well, it looks like a giant nose of an animal. You might’ve thought it was only one hole on the back, but that isn’t the case.

Unlike fish, whales don’t have gills, so they can’t breathe underwater. The blowhole on top of their head acts as a nostril. They swim, come up for air, and breathe through the blowhole. Most of us aren’t lucky enough to get up close to see it!

You’ve probably seen plenty of battleships in movies, TV shows, and up close in person, but never outside of water, have you? Did you know it looked like this underneath?

These armored ships were much different than any cruise ship you’ve been on. Battleships were armed to protect from the sea. The U.S. Navy stopped using battleships in 2004, replacing them with aircraft carriers and large submarines to get the job done.

Here’s a rarely-seen angle of a space shuttle launching into orbit. From this perspective, you can see how incredibly small the shuttle looks against the sky and space beyond it. Standing next to the space shuttle on the ground, you can see that it’s not small by any means!

Once the space shuttle sets into orbit it travels at an incredible rate of 17,500 miles per hour. Incredibly, every 45 minutes the space ship crew is able to see a new sunrise or sunset.

If you entered a plane and there were no seats, this is what it would look like. We’re used to seeing all of the seats and passengers filling up the space, but nobody’s used to seeing it like this.

From this perspective, the seat-less Boeing looks more like a space travel film set. Maybe this will make you feel like flying is a little more exciting the next time that you step aboard an aircraft!

Watching from your TV at home, we see reported as poised and well-kept. There’s a chance that you’ll see a tiny mic clipped to their blouse, but other than that, recording devices are completely discreet.

Taking a look from behind, you can see what it really looks like to be mic-ed up. Wow! That’s a lot of wiring! Can you imagine having to work this into every outfit that you wore?

Thanks to birth defects, some five-pointed starfish can come out as a square. It’s like if SpongeBob and Patrick fused together! What a crazy find to come across.

If you didn’t see the starfish on the right, you might not even have believed that this was a starfish… or a square-fish in this case. This photo goes to show that nature is full of surprises if you’re looking in the right places.

Pearls are excellent accessory pieces. Who knew the insides looked like the stumps of trees when you cut them down? Most people would never think to cut a pearl in half, finding it beautiful the way it comes in its natural form, but there is even more beauty inside.

Looking at pearls from this perspective, you can see how they grow from the inside out, while inside of an oyster.

The power of tanning is that it cooks or paints your skin and gives you that glow, but you can’t forget to leave some body parts uncovered. Her face is about eight shades darker than her arm. You don’t usually see that.

For that matter, her hair is also dyed a much lighter shade than her hair’s roots, so there’s a lot of bleaching and coloration going on here. it makes the whites of her eyes and teeth stand out even more.

Your eyes are probably your most sensitive body parts. I can’t imagine having surgery done on mine, but when you need it, you have to get it. Here’s what they look like after a cornea transplant.

Would you have guessed that your eyes receive the same stitch-like patterns when they are in surgery? This photograph is difficult enough to look at, I couldn’t imagine having to actually sit and watch the procedure!

Located in Pisa, Italy, the Leaning Tower Of Pisa is a global landmark. However, have you ever thought about the inside? It looks like the interior would be divided into small rooms or a large open entertaining space for the ages.

Standing at more than 183 feet tall on the low side, and around 3 feet taller on the high side, the tower has a staircase around the perimeter and a hollow interior.

When you think of fireworks, you think of the colorful lights up in the sky on the Fourth of July. But have you ever thought about what a firework shell looks like?

The shells are separated into multiple tiers, filled with gunpowder. There’s a lot that goes into these, including money! The annual fireworks show in Boston costs more than $2.5 million to show every year! The next time you see fireworks, you’ll know where they came from.

When you think of tumbleweed, you likely think of the giant ball of dead branches that you’re trying to avoid on the highway. Not only can these tumbleweeds cause major scratches to your car, but they can also cause major accidents from people trying to avoid them!

This is what tumbleweed looks like when it’s still planted in the ground. While it’s not even an eyesore now, this baby will do some damage once it’s ripped up.

Wait, is this what it looks like? Are there AAA batteries inside of this larger battery? The battery company gets high off its own supply now? If you know what you’re doing, you could probably make these yourself.

On the inside of batteries, heavy metals are introduced to chemical electrolyte to generate power. Every year, Americans purchase almost 3 billion dry-cell batteries to charge their toys and other electronic devices.

There are mainly three types of materials that are used for the outside of the bowling ball: polyester, urethane, and reactive urethane, which is the highest-performing of the three. The core of the bowling ball is created using bismuth graphite, barium, or a ceramic core.

When looking at a bowling ball and feeling the proper weight distribution in your hands, you would never guess that this is what’s on the inside of the design.

The Tour de France isn’t an easy athletic event by any stretch of the imagination. You’re riding a bike for an insane number of miles at high speeds. No wonder Polish cyclist Pawel Poljanski’s legs look like this! In 2020, he finished in 67th place.

In 2017, the Tour spanned 2,200 miles. However, back in 1926, the race went the longest route in the Tour’s history, covering an incredible 3,570 miles.

Freshly cut cinnamon looks like regular bark from a tree. Who knew this thing would turn into such a sweet and tasty spice? You also can get the tiny sticks from this.

Cinnamon comes from several different types of trees, with one of them being called the most “true”– Cinnamomum verum. As of 2016, Indonesia and China combined produced 75% of the world’s supply of cinnamon. However, the aromatic spice dates back to as early as 2000 BC, in Egypt.

Who knew the back of a bowling alley looked so much like a laundromat? A technician took this picture, but he should have explained why the balls get stuck so often.

The first indoor bowling alley opened in New York City in 1840. Back then, the lanes were made of clay instead of wood. During those times, bowling was heavily associated with gambling, and so bowling alleys became tightly regulated by the U.S. government.

You know that sounds that a can of spray paint makes when you shake it? Well that’s due to this ball! Canned spray paint was first invented in 1949 by Edward Seymour, In Sycamore, Illinois.

It was Edward’s wife who suggested that he put a type of paint that he created into a spray can. The cans come with this ball, made of metal, marble, glass, or plastic, depending on the brand. This ball mixes the paint when you shake the can.
