Say what you will about lighting, composition and color. Yes, these are some of the basics you'll need to create the perfect shot. But sometimes, yes sometimes, you just have to be at the right place at the right time. If you don't believe me, check out the work of Matt Stuart. His clever photos are a result of patience and luck.

"All of the pictures are real moments taken over an eight-year period. None of them are staged. If they were staged it wouldn't have taken me eight years to take them!" - Matt Stuart

He also has some commissioned work. This, by far, is my favorite.

His work inspires me to be a little more observant in my find the happy accidents just waiting to happen.
