    The pharmacy one is particularly appropriate for me. Struggle to open many bottles & jars.

    You don’t have that on your own!
    It’s OK to make them “Kid’s Safe” But surely not “Old Safe”!

    I have the same problem – they are not only kid-proof – they are granny-proof as well!!!!

    Perfectly Timed Photos

    Super Tall Synchronized Swimmer
    This picture at first glance may make you say “What?!” rather than “Wow!” However, we think it should be both! The picture gives an illusion that the one synchronized swimmer is very tall and very flexible. Also, just a little creepy.

    However, it is just that an illusion. There are actually 2 swimmers pictured here, as one has the upper half of her body underwater. But, both still need lots of talent in order to compete as a synchronized swimmer. Definitely a perfectly timed picture!

    Hang Loose
    The photographer of this picture allows you to see a wave from a professional surfer’s point of view. The female surfing in the tunnel of the wave is something only seasoned surfers get to experience. You aren’t going to catch an average surfer in a wave like that.

    With the sun setting in the background, it made for a perfect environment to snap an amazing photo. Hopefully, the photographer made it out of the tunnel and wasn’t pummeled by the wave. Getting hit by a wave like that can be bit troubling.

    Bronzed Baller
    Who says that statues can’t play a game of basketball? Playing basketball with your friends can be a good time, but it would definitely be more interesting if a statue joined in on the game. It looks like this photographer brought that fairy tale to life.

    With the statue’s outstretched position, it looks like he has just shot the basketball. We wonder if he made the shot or not. If you ask me, he probably did. Being a statue he had a long time of sitting up there and watching many basketball games go by.

    Cycling Splash
    The Cape Epic is an annual mountain bike race that takes place in South Africa’s Western Cape. Racers must ride more than 700 kilometers or 435 miles, over 8 days. The race is open to all amateur riders and participants must race in teams of two.

    Here we see one team who is only separated by a short distance. The second member splashes through a mud puddle as he follows his teammate. Hopefully, the mud doesn’t slow him down too much and he is able to catch up

    The Sun Juggler
    This picture is just too cool and it’s something that anyone can do. If someone were to tell you they could juggle a soccer ball, you may or may not be impressed. However, what if someone told you they once juggled the sun. How could that be possible?

    Well, with amazing photography skills like this, anything’s possible. With the incredible red sky background, the lighting left a perfect black silhouette of a man who was able to perfectly align his body to the setting sun.

    One With The Water
    Talk about a perfectly timed picture. Since Michael Phelps, competitive Olympic swimming is becoming one of the most watched sports in the Olympics. Here we see a photographer who was able to snap a picture of one of Phelps U.S. competitors.

    It looks like the water is effortlessly gliding over the swimmer or a perfect example of water surface tension. It seems as though the swimmer has truly become one with his true competition – the water. This is just an amazing photograph.

    Horse Riding Head Switch
    At first glance you may believe this is the mythical creature, the Hayagriva, however, don’t worry, that is still a myth. It was a perfectly timed photograph as a woman in traditional garb stood next to the horses, during a rest from riding.

    The woman is standing right next to the horse’s head so as the horse’s head turned, it looked as though the horse had sprung a human body. If you look closer, it kind of looks like the horse is being sassy and that the other horse is just ignoring her.
