    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

    I saw this on Twitter and it got me thinking that there's beauty everywhere if we only care to take a step back, look and appreciate it.

    So, it might be nice to have a thread where people posted "beautiful things".

    The beauty in this clip is the process itself, although the final scene with them all disappearing off is pretty cool too.

    Having said that, it won't surprise me if someone says it's grotesque.

    That's brilliant to watch.

    My one is horrible, brutalist 60s architecture - I absolutely love it.

    Sadly we're going through a time where it is fashionable (and being honest, practical) to tear a load of it down.

    I have no background in architecture or anything similar, but I can lose hours online, absolutely mesmerised, looking at what most people would consider to be horrifically ugly buildings.

    I love ecclesiastical architecture. My favourite example I have seen in the flesh is Santa Maria Del Mar in Barcelona.

    It's often overlooked because people only want see the Sagrada Familia but it's an amazing building that dates from the 14th century.

    I've not got a religious bone in my body but as I get older I'm really starting to appreciate the architecture of churches without actually setting foot inside them. There's a church across the road from Tickety Boo's in Dundee which is particularly pleasing to my untrained eye.

    I think you're meaning St Paul's Cathedral.

    I usually like the interior of Anglican churches. They often manage to strike a nice balance between the austereness of the Church of Scotland and the more tawdry excesses of some Catholic churches.

    My late Uncle was an Architect, he designed and won many awards throughout Edinburgh with his work, the only one I know of is the hexagonal extension to the church beside the Conan Doyle pub and St James centre, good hibbie too 🇳🇬

    That's not a church. It's St Mary's Cathedral.

    My favourite London walk is from St Paul's to the southbank and passing Parliment on the other side of the Thames. Such a variety of buildings and bridges taking in all kinds of styles. Highly recommended if you have a few hours to spare in London. MI6 (or 5, I forget) is also on view. Secret service haha
