Life is full of happy accidents, as the saying goes. And that also spills over into what some people call “accidental art.”

It could be any number of things: the way the sunset hits a building, some mud that was splashed onto a truck in a weird pattern, all kinds of things.

When it happens, it can be wonderful.

Here are 15 great examples.
