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.

Shoes aloft

When I lived in Brighton this was a common sight. Anything high up, a telephone wire, piece of cable or tree branch was inevitably adorned with some unfortunate persons pair of shoes. I spotted this pair on a quiet road on my way from Colchester to neighbouring Stanway today. It made me remember my Brighton years and made me smile.
