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.

Got my eye on you...

Anyone who's spent any time travelling on the trains will know that public transport is a hotspot for security. Lack of bins, sniffer dogs and CCTV, probably being the top three ways the transport police are keeping tabs on you and apparently making things safer. I have little to hide, and so am not really that bothered by CCTV. There have been countless articles and papers written on how it encroaches on our human rights but in my eyes, if it helps solve a crime or track down a missing runaway, I'm not all that phased by it. It is sort of strange though when you look up and see reams of camera lenses staring at you. I always feel like I should wave- just to give the person watching something to smile at.
