Looking down, like only a semi-Londoner would know how to do

2012 Photography Project

It is said that if you’re a proper Londoner, whether living or working, you don’t look up. You walk around with your head down. Never making eye contact with those around you.

Well, that was me for most of the month. Like I said previously, I decided to spend my month of April taking photos while looking down. At my feet.

I started the month late and missed a few days here and there. But nevertheless, here they are.

Can it be noted that the final photo there took a lot of effort. When I say effort, I mean stomach muscles. I really need to get back to pilates! Also, I don’t like feet. In fact I think they’re just plain ugly. I couldn’t face taking photos of my bare feet. Well, only a couple of occasions. And the other occasions they’re covered in blankets.

Oh and as you can probably tell, I live in my trainers. I was wondering whether the photos would all turn out ridiculously boring because I practically wear the same pair of shoes every day.

What’s the theme for May?

This year is flying by. I can’t believe May’s here already. Well, I bet I say that every year. Meanwhile, every year, it’s always the same!

I was thinking of doing a month of looking up instead of down, for May’s theme. Changing my mind from what I set out last month. But the weather is utterly disgusting and bleak. So this month I’ll be trying to make the most out of the spring like weather and will be taking one photo every day of something green. Flowers, grass, trees, anything natural. Shouldn’t be too hard. I hope.
