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.

there's something on the ceiling

Whenever entering a house of worship or prominence it’s always best to check out what is happening on the ceiling. No doubt this will be the most elaborate of the decor. I’ve never quite worked out why but it always seems so.

The Pantheon, Rome

The Dali Museum, Figueres

Gaudi's Garden, Barcelona

  1. I was thinking about the pantheon this morning. I was talking to myself about Guildfest and described the line up - Peter Andre, Razorlite and James Blunt, as a 'pantheon of wankers'.
