But quick-witted internet users have posted a batch of hilarious and uncanny incidents on social media that prove timing is everything. From a newsreader who looks identical to the wanted robber he is describing to the viewers, to a beaver eating a 'no feeding' sign, these comical coincidences are almost too good to be true.

    Since the election, former White House photographer Pete Souza has been flooding Instagram with postcards from the presidency of Barack Obama. The timing of each upload is deliberate, designed to contrast the former POTUS’s grace and poise with the current one’s flailing malice. Souza’s Instagram, which now has about 1.5 million followers, feels like a magic mirror swimming with images from a brighter past. After President Donald Trump gave a keynote speech at the Boy Scouts’ jamboree only to gloat about election night 2016, Souza unearthed a photo of Obama shaking the hand of an awed kid in uniform. “I...

    ABID HUSSAN took one step inside the foul-smelling prison cell and began to shake. Beads of sweat ran down his forehead and behind his gold-rimmed spectacles. The 45-year-old shopkeeper pointed to the electric cables hanging from the ceiling where President Saddam Hussein’s security police would torture him three times a day. People tried to elbow their way inside this impossibly small 6ft by 4ft torture chamber. They were anxious to sift through the documents carpeting the floor to see if it gave a clue as to what became of a loved one, or friend, who had been dragged inside here...

    "Photographer Levi Bettweiser is the man behind the Rescued Film Project, an effort to find and rescue old and undeveloped rolls of film from the far corners of the world. He recently came across one of his biggest finds so far: 31 undeveloped rolls of film shot by a single soldier during World War II. Bettweiser tells us he found the film rolls in late 2014 at an auction in Ohio. About half the rolls were labeled with various location names (i.e. Boston Harbor, Lucky Strike Beach, LaHavre Harbor). “I know nothing about who shot the film or who it...

    MADISON, Wis. — Republican Party election observers monitoring in-person absentee voting at Milwaukee’s largest polling place say partisan election officials are shutting them out. Reports to Wisconsin Reporter from observers at the Zeidler Municipal Building in downtown Milwaukee detail the strict enforcement of the Democrat-heavy Milwaukee Election Commission’s edict keeping poll workers as far away from voters as a new state law will allow — eight feet. “I could neither see what any voters was providing for (proof of residency) nor hear the conversation between the election worker and the voter, who was then given a ballot,” one observer told...

    Courtesy of the author The genius of Maya Lin’s design for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial -- “The Wall” -- is the visitor’s overwhelming sense of loss. The names of the dead, on 140 black granite panels, appear infinite in number. It has been 32 years since The Wall was dedicated. It has become a place of healing, where Americans could separate the sacrifice of the warriors from what had become America’s most unpopular war. Back then, a young veteran, Jan Scruggs, took $2,000 of his own money and began raising the $8.4 million in private contributions to build what...

    Arts and Labor Austin ^ | June 2014 | Michael Corcoran
    Burton Wilson’s camera was Austin’s memory during the hippie era when, as the saying went, if you could remember it, you weren’t there. The former Vermont farmboy who documented the vibrant scene at the Vulcan Gas Company in the 1960s and the Armadillo World Headquarters in the 1970s passed away Monday morning. He was 95. Wilson got it down while those around him were only concerned with getting down. In the process, he created the defining documents of an enchanting era in Austin’s history. “Burton was one of my mentors,” said photographer Todd V. Wolfson. “He made me want to...

    "The earliest picture of a figure in the street happened by pure chance. The man (who can be seen with one leg raised) stopped to have his boots shined. He was still long enough for an image to be formed. No one else is visible in the picture because they were in motion. Nevertheless there are pictures from the mid 1800s of people smiling e.g. Roger Fenton's Crimean War pictures.

    Instagram just set off a bomb inside its new privacy policy and terms of service. New wording essentially makes it possible to turn people’s photos posted after Jan. 16 using Instagram into advertisements. In other words, that sutro-toned picture of your beloved Lhasa apso freshly coiffed after her grooming might well become an ad for Classy Canine Dog Salon. The language at issue: [Y]ou hereby grant to Instagram a non-exclusive, fully paid and royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable, worldwide license to use the Content that you post on or through the Service, except that you can control who can view certain of...

On further examination, he had a framed picture of Harry Reid with his arm about the Doctor, then I noticed a framed picture of the Democratic Representative frorm Nevada. Next to that was an authgraphed phote Hillary and the Doctor arm in arm. I could not figure this out until it dawned on me, after all this Doctor is a Proctologist, and it only stands to reason that he would be associated with this...

    A city in ruins: Stunning photo taken from kite that captures devastation from 1906 earthquake in San Francisco This rarely seen image of the city of San Fransisco lying in ruins after the devastating earthquake of 1906 was captured by an ingenious photographer using a camera attached kites. The panoramic shot, which is of outstanding quality considering the basic equipment available, shows the full scale of the disaster which claimed the lives of over 3,000, injured 225,000 and caused $400,000,000 worth of property damage. Commercial photographer George Lawrence, who used home-made large format cameras, was well known at the time...
  • Unseen photographs reveal the private life of Adolf Hitler

    A set of photographs showing the private side of Adolf Hitler have been published for the first time. The colour pictures come from the collection of Hugo Jaeger, Hitler's personal photographer, who captured him on camera him from 1936 to the final days of his rule in 1945. Jaeger hid thousands of transparencies in a leather suitcase at the end of the war. The case was found by six US soldiers as they searched a house near Munich where he was staying but they were more interested in a bottle of cognac he had also slipped inside.

Survivors from the Titanic are pictured here rowing towards rescue ship the Carpathia in what appear to be relatively calm seas Danger ahead: Taken from a rescue vessel, this photograph shows an iceberg in the distance - perhaps...
