World at our feet

A brief interlude of snow yesterday which soon turned back to rain and melt. One aesthetic upside to all the downpours we’ve had since the summer, are the urban pools, reflecting a different dimension to city life. The sky is turned upside down and streets become glass-bottomed, and so, as is often the case, we have the world at our feet.

I’ve been a puddle lover for a long while, long before I discovered Gavin Hammond’s iconic images of  ‘London in puddles‘. Here’s one I made in summer- conjoined aspects of the British Museum
