The Eye of the Beholder

À Chacun Son Goût

~ The French say that one cannot much argue usefully about personal taste; to each his own. However, not everything is art, nor do we widely embrace form irrespective of function. Could wind turbines be made more aesthetic? Perhaps, but that's not why we build them.

Nonetheless, they are attractive to some of us, especially compared to, say, coal plants.
