How does any everyday urban scene look from ground level, mundane and normal perhaps, I climbed a couple of floors to take a look, I needed a different view, I photograph these urban scenes constantly looking for something unusual, out of the ordinary.
A simple arrangement of painted squares and passing pedestrians gave me an idea, how many people would unconsciously pass directly over the square in their quest to get somewhere else. I waited and watched exactly six people past exactly over the arranged squares, how strange. A girl pauses to wait for an appointment standing directly
in the centre square. Did she realise where she was standing? Something out of nothing…
