18 People Who Witnessed Coincidences and Were Lucky Enough to Capture Them

It is believed that “a coincidence itself is in the eye of the beholder.” Thus, if a rare and surprising event happens somewhere in a remote area, far away from sight, where no one notices or cares about it, then it’s not really a coincidence. So what’s amazing and impressive is not that these things actually occur, but that we perceive and become aware of them.

Bright Side has collected 18 photos where people had surprising connective experiences and decided to create meaning out of them with pics that are guaranteed to wow you.
