"Renaissance" is translated from the original French as “rebirth.” The Renaissance was so named because it signaled the reemergence of humanism. Derived from the practices of ancient Greece and Rome, Renaissance humanism was centered in Italy and encouraged a revival of ancient ideals.

When you point your camera at a random thing on the street, you usually don’t expect much. But in the vast sea of dull photos that fill your camera roll, one stands out. Call it a miracle, or a lovely surprise, but if you feel like the pic is superior in composition, style, lighting, and somewhat resembles a classical painting, it may be that you have just encountered “accidental renaissance.”
