Paddington in bloom (1)
Is beauty in the eye of the beholder? Are these scenes beautiful to me, but not beautiful to others, even when their attention is drawn to them? I suspect so. I am on safe ground here, but was less so earlier today when walking in the city with my son.
After narrowly escaping from the grasping claws of the newest Westfield to be unleashed upon our citizenry, I suggested that we have a look at the David Jones' Christmas pantomine windows. He could not bring himself to even have a look because it represented a social system which he could not abide - religion.
I am not religious, and have similar opinions. However, the windows are beautiful. Apparently, this beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
