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.
You might enjoy it.
You might see something good.

First off- pardon the pun! I honestly couldn't help myself and that my only excuse for it.
Here is an awesome column of cows decorating a wall in Clerkenwell, London. Even though I've moved, I still only seem to find decent 'look ups' when I'm visiting somewhere else. It's probably not the location though, it's probably just my laziness of late! I loved these slightly incongruous cows that had been mounted to an otherwise seemingly boring looking building. I have no idea if the cows have anything to do with what goes on in this office, if anyone has even a slight inclining do let me know...

I saw this building when I was in central London over the weekend (just visiting now!) and found its bricked up windows really intriguing. It's not uncommon to see the odd one bricked in but this building looks like it should have 5 windows and not 1. Very bizzare.
