@C0baltBlue drew my attention to this great site containing lots of double-take photos…. here are three to whet your appetite ……

Which is your favourite?


  1. These really are fascinating and quirky! Thanks again for another delightful little workout for the brain and eyes. Difficult to choose a favourite, again, but, to me, the first photograph has more of an instant double-take, whilst the others require more of a moment to work out exactly what’s going on. They’re all double-takes and all have that element, but the first feels more of an instant surprise and, for that element, it just about tops the others. Thanks for another bit of cerebral stimulation in the morning 🙂

  2. When I was young, cameras used film and film was expensive and the reel soon needed changing. Consequently, there was very little ‘point and shoot’ photography except from a few professional photojournalists who carried special cameras with motorised spools. Consequently, we all took time to compose a photograph. Those of us with training and experience knew to avoid the, ‘palm tree sticking out of the head’ type of shot. Nowadays, with digital cameras we can all shoot away regardless and Photoshop will remove the palm trees and other intrusions. This new technology has made us all heedless.

    1. I see nothing wrong with getting upset about poor compositional technique in a photo. They’re kind of interesting to look at in a collection like this, but as a single picture from a roll of film it would be really annoying to have a picture come out like this.

      I took a media production class in college and images like this were one of the things they told us to avoid, there is a technical term for it (which I can’t recall offhand) and it really is a big problem if you’re trying to compose a quality picture.

  3. The foot-hand, because even when I looked closely, although I knew the woman’s hand must be on or near her ankle, I couldn’t see it.

  4. It took me a long time to get number one for some reason – I couldn’t see the knees for the legs. Felt an idiot when I finally saw it.

  5. Excellent post. I used to be checking constantly this weblog and I
    am impressed! Extremely useful information specifically the closing section 🙂 I handle
    such info a lot. I used to be seeking this particular information for a long
    time. Thanks and good luck.

  6. It’s perfect tme to mazke some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy.
    I’ve read this post and if I could I desire to suggest you some
    interesting things or advice. Maybe you can write next articles referring to this article.
    I desire to read even more things about it!
