Symmetrical Monsters Shows the Power of Symmetry in Architecture and Photography

Instagram account captures the awe-inspiring effect of symmetrical architecture.

The human mind craves symmetry. Some say, biologically we look for it in a partner, as it’s a sure sign of good genes. We also love seeing it in nature, whether it’s the perfect pattern in a leaf or butterfly wings in flight as they rise and fall like mirror images. For those who love man-made symmetry, there’s an Instagram account that curates beautiful shots of symmetrical architecture throughout the globe. The account is a celebration of art, photography, and the awe-inspiring feeling you get while standing before amazing feats of design.

If you’ve got some great symmetrical shots, tag them with #SymmetricalMonsters and they might make it to the Instagram account.
