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.

And it was all yellow...

I love the summer; I adore the heat, eating outdoors, paddling in the sea and everything that goes with these things. But there's something beautiful about when autumn hits. It seems like the world momentarily bursts into colour- a final flash of life before winter turns everything grey and washed out. It's scenes like this one that makes me appreciate nature all the more, I am forever awed that colours as strong and vibrant as this exist outside of the Dulux colour chart!
