Birds eye view

On a lazy hot afternoon stand on your balcony and observe life as it passes on the road below. You are not a bird from the tree but on a tree level with human eyes that can focus down on the tops of vertical walking things. You see seeing groups of people as a single presence doing their bit for their human drama. You are the cinematographer that can document their lives for a brief while from the vantage of your balcony. The advantage is they appear to you horizontally interacting with each other without the interference that your own presence in the same plane of existence may cause. For example the same people are sitting in your sofa and you click them doing something from your position on another sofa and you miss the way they interact with each other , the eye contacts that pass through them and bounce off their bodies.
