Not everything in the world are what they appear to be. Sometimes, people and things we encounter have something inside that can totally change how we view them. Case in point, we should not always choose the pretty, over-decorated cake over the plain bread – which in reality is much more moist, fluffier and delicious. We should try to look at things from a different perspective to know their true worth and for us to appreciate them better.
In the collection of photos below, we present to you various places, inventions and things that were captured from a perspective that is different from the usual. Through this, you will see how important it is to look at the entirety of things more frequently.

According to the 56-year-old nature photographer, he spotted the unlikely pair spending several hours together for ten days straight between 8pm and 4am. The two young animals would sit down to eat together and enjoy the spectacular views for up to two hours.

Scientists Remove Plastic Straw From Sea Turtle’s Nostril in Heartbreaking Video
Please stop using plastic drinking straws!
There's no better way to enjoy an ice-cold beverage on a hot day than to sip it using a plastic drinking straw! But have you ever thought how much damage it can cause the environment?
Drinking straws have existed even before 3000 BCE, and as the drinking straw was patented in the late 1800s by Marvin Stone, many other different types of straws have been invented. Drinking straws made of plastic, in particular, are the most popular as they are cheap and easy to mold. However, these plastic drinking straws are not only harmful to the environment; they can also be fatal to many animal species.
When Nathan Robinson and Christine Figgener were in their in-water research trip in Costa Rica, they found a male Olive Ridley sea turtle with something lodged on its left nostril.
They initially thought it was a parasitic worm, but were horrified to discover that it was a plastic drinking straw!
