If I’m working from home then I love to walk my daughter to nursery to start my day. After I’ve dropped her off, I’ll often continue my walk near the River Mersey.
The view from the promenade looks towards Liverpool. I often take pictures of the city from the same spot on my walk.
Some days I focus on the beach…
…other days I’ll look up to the sky…
…and sometimes the sun shines just right and I capture something truly beautiful.
Changing my focus just a little can make a big difference. It’s the same city in the distance, but a little to the left, a sunny day or the tide being in can mean a radically different picture.
When you’re preparing for the viva, take time to look at your thesis in new ways. Ask yourself questions you’ve not considered before. Make summaries to tease out certain kinds of information. Reflect on what you’ve done and look from a different perspective.
You might see something interesting.
You might get some new ideas.
You might just see something beautiful.
