30 Times People Took Photos And They Ended Up Looking Like Renaissance Paintings

Published 4 years ago

Bulky cameras, lenses, film, and SD cards are slowly becoming a thing of the past since nowadays almost all of us have a smartphone in our pockets that we use to snap numerous pictures every day without really thinking about it. And while many of them are nothing more than snapshots of homework or cats that we spotted on the street, sometimes we end up accidentally producing pictures that would make any renaissance artist’s jaw drop in awe.

People over at the r/AccidentalRenaissance subreddit are sharing examples of the oil painting-like photos they’ve accidentally captured, and some of them look like they’re taken straight out of the Louvre. Check out some amazing examples of “accidental renaissance” in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
