With TV and the internet, it's gotten so we don't ever actually have to go anywhere to see everything. Just whip out your device, swipe a couple of times, and you've literally seen the world. Everything is explorable within the palm of your hand. Is anything worth seeking out and exploring on your own anymore? Should we just succumb to the algorithms and what they show us? No. No, we shouldn't.

The thing is, your devices are giving you a completely false idea of what famous stuff actually looks like. We only see things from a certain angle if we rely totally on photographs that focus purely on the photogenic side of a famous landmark, building, or statue. The purpose of such tourist photography is the hope that we become tourists ourselves, to see it for ourselves.

Fortunately, we at Cracked gathered up some little seen pics of things that are seen everyday online, but with different angles and context.
