Vividness is in the eye of the beholder

Some days sights stand out like an artwork or cherished memory. They weave together like poetry and I wonder if this is the result of sunshine, a good night’s sleep or a trick of the eye.

Walking past the sandstone of St Andrew’s Cathedral, a man looking like a troubled disciple urinates against the wall, hidden by a low, non-burning bush. While some find comfort within, he’s found relief outside.

Two pastel green motor scooters sit side by tidy side on Clarence St except one is within the parking area and the other without. A female parking inspector stands upright in judgement like a robot from a sci-fi movie and separates the two on a point of law.

Later an office worker strides down Kent, security card swinging, and a hand held to her face, covering tears. She walks on looking sideways in anguish but not slowing, tears not moving a busy soul.

A young Indian woman with flowing hair sits on the ground in the foyer staring at a water bottle in front of her, lid off. I think she might be hit by the door if someone comes down the stairs but I leave her to her vigil.

  1. Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it
    from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would
    really make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your theme.

    With thanks

    • It’s a free WordPress theme: Vertigo. “A stylish and fun theme with one column, a custom header, and a custom accent color. It includes special styles for Aside, Gallery, Image, Quote, Link, Chat, Status, Audio and Video post formats. Inspired by the design work of the late Saul Bass, and based on the original design by Matthew Buchanan.”

  2. Greetings! I’ve been following your weblog for some time now and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout out from Austin Texas! Just wanted to say keep up the good job!
