VERTICALS AND SYMMETRY.
Every photographer out there can create an entire album highlighting these two features alone in the pictures.
But hold there, looks like I have captured a few pictures with these features too.
But why are these features so alluring when seen with the naked eye?
But first, here's the scene on how it's taken:
One takes a walk and witnesses trees lined up, the branches and leaves growing out in a consistent unwavering pattern with a diffident effort to form a canopy. The sunlight penetrates through or the dim lighting sets the mood to take out one's phone and *click* capture a photo of it. [1,2]
Or take the scene of a secluded corridor at midnight, the lights faintly light up the vertical ahead. The pale colored walls complementing the lighting adds on, and one *click* captures a photo of it. 
Symmetry symbols effortlessness. Effortlessness in comprehending and just placidly staring and admiring a piece of art for a long time. Why not capture a photo of it so that we can adore it even later.
Observe keenly and closely the Chinese traditional architecture, it is simple yet beautiful and colorful. 
Simple because it has symmetry and follows a pattern, unlike Indian architecture which mostly resembles an ocean of cursive strokes and is hard to decipher, hence not striking enough to capture a photo of. [5,6,7,8]
Why does the mind work this way?
Drawing parallels with life and surroundings, the world is filled with so much chaos that witnessing a sense of direction and pattern in one's surrounding makes one appreciate it.
Being blunt, everyone's world is a roller coaster and a chaos, mainly because everything around us is so dynamic and we exist interdependently. So even if one goes the extra mile in being prudent enough in one's chores, the predicament of one's future at least the fraction which does not rely on hard work always remains uncertain.
So when a piece of direction, pattern and order uncalled for lies ahead, we tend to capture it on our phone. .
