You can spend hours styling, lighting, and preparing for a photoshoot — but we all know that the best photographic moments are the ones that happen completely out of nowhere, candid snapshots that you actually couldn't plan if you tried.
When you're least expecting it, the world can converge in the most beautiful way and present you with an image that is equal parts hilarious and well-times. This collection of photos is a celebration of these moments, with each one of them being more unmistakably candid than the last. It's hard to classify these images into a genre (some of them will make you laugh, and others will make you cry).
So instead, we'll just call these images the most appropriately appropriate photos of all time, taken at just the right moment for just the right results. Don't try to recreate them at home — after all, even if you wanted to, you couldn't. Instead, just bask in their glory for as long as you can. #22 is the most beautiful thing we've ever seen.
#1. Check out this Putin patient.

#2. You just can plan these kinds of moments.
Maybe they’ve all converged at this perfect moment to try and tell us something. Whatever the case may be, this might be the most beautiful football moment ever captured on film.
#3. We don't know what's going on here.
But clearly, it’s the defining negative experience of everyone’s life. We’d be willing to bet that the girl in the front will never be the same again.
#4. For her next album.
It takes a special kind of personality to be able to get a police officer to take a hype photo of while he’s dealing with your car accident.
#5. What the Aliens films were based off of.
Suddenly, a smaller, more evil horse emerged from the mouth of the mother horse. Where’s Sigourney Weaver when you need her?
