These Breathtaking Photos Show The Hidden Beauty Of City Life

As someone who grew up basically in the woods and now lives in a city, I've noticed that people generally seem to think the countryside is the most beautiful landscape. It is a place where people go when they need to escape the dirt and the grayscale of the city. 

While I suppose I agree with part of that, I think the idea that cities cannot be beautiful is just plain wrong. Sure, there can be debris and garbage littering the place, but if you know where to look, you can find sights that don't exist anywhere else in  the world.

Don't believe me? Oh, ye of little faith.
