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.

Marker Pen Politics

I love a bit of political graffitti, and I always find it interesting seeing stuff abroad as I think it tells you a lot about what the locals view on current affairs is. This scrawl caught my eye as I walked past an old boarded up entrance. Amsterdam, being part of the Euro, doesn't seem to be keen on the flailing strength of their economy. The pounds not great either folks. Chin up- we're all in the shit together.
