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.


About me

I like photography, noticing things other people don't, writing, reading, lying in the sun, walking barefoot, travelling, watching art take place, trying to capture a moment.


  1. I was trawling Gum Tree for some inspiration.. you posted your blog on there and I gave it a look. I can often be seen wandering London looking up too! There are so many interesting architectural features that remain unseen by the majority, advertisements from years gone by for companies that no longer exist, graffiti, lost/forgotten items e.g. balloons, kites, balls, shoes (!) etc to be seen when you look up. Hope you don't mind if I follow your blog!?
    p.s. You wrote something about Oxford St, I agree it's a crazy place! Good to hear there's others looking up at the old and new buildings above, some lovely facades up there! Whilst most other people are busily looking at their reflections in the shop windows!
