Architectural detail can be a joy to behold, if you like that sort of thing.
I note that interior designers are using lighting more and more to enhance the look of old buildings. You will find uplights places at the bottom of columns and spotlights used to highlight fan vaulting in churches, cathedrals and town halls across the nation..
This doesn't make the building much lighter, but it does make the scene more attractive, more photogenic.
This is where I would usually write some witty and well observed comments about the state of the world. These may take the form of a diatribe against foolishness of man or a grumble about pointless bureaucracy.
In this case I merely point out this ornate faux-ancient light fitting with it's faux-candlesticks and faux electric candles. I assume it is there to give you a faux warm glow inside.
Dark damp dismal depressing dumb decision. Every year I have my loud rant when the clocks go back. Why, oh why do we do this every year? I have yet to meet someone who asserts it is a good idea. Nobody wants it, yet we still do it. It is such a simple thing and yet there are no politicians brave enough to make this small change. If you promise to abolish this foolishness immediately, I will vote for you. Are you listening? No? No. No-one is listening. I have ranted about this for forty years. Politicians: If you can't sort out something small like this, how can we expect you sort out the complicated things in life. Ooh, I'm right cross now. :-)
Young folks make us old folks feel old IMHO (LOL)...
They take to new technology painlessly as if it has always been there. In fact if you are under 15, smartphones and social media have always been there. The stuff that we oldies have finally managed to master seems ancient if you are young.
I mean: A telephone with a wire on it. What's the point of that. Where do you plug it in when you are out and about eh? Duh.
