Beauty in unexpected places

I love the detailing in old buildings.From another age when a craftsman could show off his skills in every job he undertook. He could take a real pride in his work knowing that generations later people would still be admiring his handiwork.

I admire this ceiling every time I have to queue up at the bank. It's HSBC's ceiling in Petersfield and is in sharp contrast to the boring black and white efficiency of what goes on beneath it.

Love the bank's ceiling. My son's a stone mason so I appreciate anything worked in stone.
