printspiration #3: looking up

I once read that remembering to ‘look up’ as you go about your day can enrich it by allowing you to notice all sorts of things you might otherwise miss. This is particularly true in a city, where there are rarely sweeping landscapes or open space, and where shop fronts and things at eye level tend to hog the majority of what you see.

I’m not sure whether I do follow this advice as much as I should but I was browsing through my photos the other day and realised how many interesting patterns and designs can be found by looking upwards, often on ceilings.
