Looking Up!


I have been spending a lot of my time looking up just recently. A series of events, some wonderful, some mind-blowing (literally), and some potentially soul destroying, have made me look very closely at my life, do some serious re-evaluation. It has taken a very real threat to make me realise how much time and energy I have wasted on insignificant people and fruitless activities, and how much I have missed on a daily basis simply by not listening, or looking properly.

Don’t worry, this is not an earnest self-help manual, or a blow by blow account of my woes. I have simply discovered the fun of looking up, instead of straight ahead, or at my feet, as I go about my daily routine. True, you have to be selective about where and when you choose to do this. I don’t recommend it while crossing the road, or indeed, driving. But there is something almost magical about looking at the world from a different angle, giving you a childs perspective again. And some marvellous architecture that has been lost above the faceless shop units of our modern high street.

I am no photographer, but I thought I would share some of my uppics (yes, I made that up!). Try it yourself.  If nothing else, it’s fun!!
