Don't take this as a solid explanation (although it may very well be), as I don't actually have any other explanation to the first picture other
than what I'm about to say.
Take a camera or your phone camera and take a picture of your screen, as in your computer monitor. On an LED LCD, the "interference" isn't
that noticeable but when you take a picture of a normal LCD monitor, or better yet a CRT monitor you'll see grid lines rather similar to that
picture. Depending on the curvature of the screen (mostly on CRT monitors) those grid lines will appear to radiate from the center convex part of the
screen in a similar pattern of and colour break of the pixels of the screen.
The moment I saw your thread, I looked straight at the picture and thought that the picture was taken from a screen with a camera. As it looks very
similar to some of the pictures I've taken from my screen and sent to my partner when I couldn't be bothered saving the picture to my phone and
sending it to her xD
Go ahead and try it, see if it works for you. Pull up a picture of the pyramids on a CRT monitor, take a photo and take a look.
Second explanation would be digital manipulation software.
