Sometimes it happens that you just push the button of your camera but eventually you get something similar to the paintings of the famous Italian artists. In order to share photos like that, Reddit users even created a special community called Accidental Renaissance.

At Bright Side, we couldn’t believe in the beginning that these photos were completely accidental. See for yourself.

1. “My friends and I got lost in the city during 90 degree weather. This photo was taken after we finally found some good air conditioning.”

2. “My friend is waiting for his drone to land.”

3. This photo was taken during the Notre Dame de Paris fire, and it looks like a piece of art.
