Find a window in a cafe or coffee shop, library or even your home, as long as it faces out to the street – preferably a busy street. Watch the world go by, the shoppers and cars and busses, each on of those people has a story to tell. Look at how they interact or pointedly do not. What are the colours like? Is everyone wearing similar clothing?

Find a second window – this one looking out onto some quieter gardenscape or mountains etc… somewhere that contrasts with the first setting. What is different here? Is it as different as you would have expected? What are the colours? And are you alone?

It is also interesting to do this exercise on different days, at different times – collecting different lighting and weather conditions.

Compare and contrast the scenes either with each other or with themselves on different days.
