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

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.

      Feets disturb me less now than they used to.

      Also, I really need to paint my toe nails.

    I never knew that about Londoners. Why is that? I like to look around, but then again I do look to look down a lot at school. I don’t like bumping into people who give me more work to do on campus. LOL

    I like May’s theme, looking up. I can’t wait to see your photos. Do you have instagram? I wanna follow you. Let me know if you have instagram. My username is Jen808

      I think it’s just that Londoners are known to be fairly… cold. All the tourists are busy looking around and taking in the sights whereas the every day folk are just looking down, getting on with trying to get through the day. Pretty depressing!

      If you move to London, you know you’re a Londoner when you start looking down! Hehe!

      I don’t have Instagram, though I did at one point. I wasn’t too impressed with the Android app. But everyone I know is on it! Torn! I’m using Android’s Lightbox at the moment for my phone photos. Should I use Instagram?

        I love Instagram, but I use the IOS (Apple) version. If you don’t like it, don’t use it. Resist the peer pressure. LOL Its easier for me to see your photos on the daily.

          See, that’s what I did like about it. Hmm, I might defect for a day and see what happens. If lightning strikes, I’m going back!

          • http://www.jenkakio.com Jen

            That’s the spirit! LOL

            If you do go back, don’t forget to let me know. I wanna follow ya!

              I will 😀

    VERY nice! Love ’em. And yeah, I’m with you about feet, I much prefer looking at my hands. In fact, I’ve sort of become the unofficial hand model at work, ahah, unpaid of course, but it’s fun that people don’t find my hands repulsive :)

    • http://time-wellspent.com Jaina

      Haha! That’s great! We going to see your hands up in lights then soon? 😉

      See, there’s a reason we put feet in socks and shoes – so they are hidden!
