10 Popular Things Seen from a “Different Angle”

In our society there are places that everyone wants to visit and take a photo, however these places are much more than their front or main part.

Very few know what these places look like from unusual perspectives. In some, the whole picture really changes and they even look more interesting.

1. The photo that inspired the “Jordans” logo

Photographer Jacobus Rentmeester, responsible for taking this fantastic photo, tried to sue Nike for using his work to create their logo.

Nike did a photo shoot with Michael Jordan to recreate the photo and thus be able to make the logo.

Unfortunately, Rentmeester’s plagiarism lawsuit was unsuccessful.
