To highlight this, Bored Panda has compiled a list of pictures where the foreground isn't supposed to be the main focus, and they will definitely make you look twice. From savage photobombs to things that were probably supposed to stay out of the frame and more, most of these surprising images are a once-in-a-lifetime type of shots their photographers will be telling their grandchildren about. Scroll down to check them out and upvote your favorites! And while you're at it, fire up these 10+ Of The Worst Selfie Fails By People Who Forgot To Check The Background.
