Do you begin and end your day with the world framed by a window or windscreen? Maybe it’s your own or perhaps it is the fingerprint smeared one of the bus or train. Do you run? Or cycle? Do you stare ahead, focussed on the point of horizon, enjoying the sensation of the landmarks flying past you? Or do you walk? Head dead ahead. Music sounding. Telephone chattering. Daydreaming.

Have you walked or driven the same route for as long as you can remember? Have you one day, for whatever reason, looked up and seen something that surprised you? A building above a shop perhaps? A blue plaque? A piece of graffiti impossibly high up? A flag. This blog is about what you can see when you tilt your chin and see a different view of your everyday world.

Look up.

You might enjoy it.

You might see something good.

sunlit stairwell

The Kunsthaus Tacheles (Art House Tacheles), Berlin

This photo is of the stairwell of an old department store in Berlin which, now disused, was being squatted by artists. The inside walls were adorned with graffiti as well as the various resident artist’s work. Whilst wandering between rooms I crossed the landing and looked up and saw the light flooding in.
