Art and beauty can be found in the most unexpected places. Sometimes it just takes a little perspective, and other times it only requires the right lighting.
The Redditor wrote, “I snapped a photo of my dog through a window screen that looks like an old painting.”
The way the dog’s brown fur glowed under a stream of sunlight, while the screen created a dark vignette effect, made the photo look like an old Baroque painting.
“The one that got away,” the photographer said in another comment. “This sweet dog died young from cancer… and this photo perfectly encapsulates his soul. I’m so glad y’all like it.”
They also explained that they took the photo from outside while the dog was inside. And yes, they already have the image framed.
“The trees you see in the top pane of glass are a reflection,” the Redditor said. “The dog was part chihuahua, part mini pincher, part Boston terrier and part hell on wheels.”
People were enthralled by the stunning photo.
“This might be the most accidental Renaissance picture I’ve ever seen. I expect to see it on the front page,” someone commented.
“Hard to believe it is not a painting. The window screen really makes it look like a canvas and the lighting is just perfect,” another said.
“I actually thought it WAS an old painting for a few seconds when I first glanced at it in my feed,” a user wrote.
