20 Perfectly Timed Pictures That are Brilliant and Funny

We’re back, with another incredible installment of the “right place at the right time”. The world is filled with millions and billions of makeshift photographers with high-pixel cameras on their phones and this is the result of it all. A picture caught in just the nick of time can capture far more than any of us could have dreamed and leave you amused, bemused, and maybe even a little sympathetic towards some of these people, who may have just been in the wrong place at the wrong time! Some pictures can even take your breath away.
