25 Discoveries People Made by Keeping a Weather Eye on Ordinary Things

Life can never be boring if you keep a watchful eye on things: an unorthodox bench design, street art referencing an old video game, or an entire hidden world inside of a tree trunk. Some of this stuff will either leave you perplexed or with a warm fuzzy feeling inside. Either way, you don’t want to miss out!
