If you've spent a decent amount of time on the Internet, you've probably developed a healthy skepticism – you shouldn't always believe what you see online, because it's fairly easy to falsify with Photoshop. These images, however, will turn your caution on its head – though all of these images look like they might be fake, each is 100% real!

Some of these images are of unexpected coincidences or exotic locations, but many also involve works of art intentionally designed by artists to subvert our certainty in what is real.

If you've ever seen something in real life that looked like it couldn't possibly be real, we'd love to see it too! Add it to this list and upvote your favorites as well.
