Beauty is Everywhere

This scene from the film American Beauty has stayed with me, years after I first saw it. It was such an eloquent way of demonstrating how visually poetic little everyday moments can be. You just have to open your eyes to them. Below are some random photographs I’ve taken in places that should ostensibly be deemed ugly — but are not when you look at them in the right way.
