19 Photos Where the Background Totally Stole the Spotlight

We are used to paying attention to the main action developing in a photo. But sometimes the background turns out to be so much more exciting, we can barely take our eyes off of it. This is exactly what happened with the photos in our selection.

We at Bright Side found 19 photographs worth looking at because of what is happening in the background. There are surprises hidden just behind the main attraction.
