Carrying on from the thread entitled "Show us your (physical) Desktop", which is great fun, I thought we should have a thread where people post pictures from outside their real life windows.

It's fun to be able to add more images to the personalities on the forum -- post a picture or two of the view from your window!

I'll start out.. Here's an image from outside my window (I'm not religious it's just what's nearby):


ps. also see this thread on getting to know each other; if you haven't posted there yet you should.

I've posted my image here, so I'll just link to it instead.
That's the south view from my parents' appartment, I'll post the North and West views when I have some time to make more panorama photos smiley

The view west, it's a field of Broccoli which will be fully of mexican season workers later this summer. Quite an operation.


Out back. It's quiet, except the hours I'm mowing.

Ugh...you guys live in beautiful places.  My view would look right into the next townhome, so out of respect for my neighbor's privacy, I won't even post.  And I'm probably paying twice as much.  That's what I get for living in California, I guess.

i have my blinds carefully closed to only allow light in but prevent anyone looking out - or in - as my view is another persons back garden. it's a bit like working in a cave.

Not necessarily. I live in Connecticut and I'm staring out the window directly into my neighbor's AC unit.

Maybe it has something to do with states whose names begin with a "C"  ???

My childhood's views (behind window or near by):

Currently I have nothing unusual to show - just London from 8th floor (and no camera after all).

We moved to Virginia from NY in December.  Here is out my back door.  It's one of the reasons we bought the house.
 These pics are from December.   now the trees are green

OK here are some photos around my house (they are all thumbnails click to see full size):

1st - not quite from a window (but within eye sight of my window):



Now two photos of garden 'wildlife':

Life isn't easy being a chick!


Are cockerals supposed to do that?


Finally inside my house:

One of my cats (Crackers) had a poorly paw and took some comfiort from a friend!

That particular hen ended up with two broods to look after (11 chicks in all) - the frustrations of motherhood were very apparent and she tended to knock them over without noticing. One day I went outside to see three chicks in that position and they couldn't get up without help!

Sounds like an episode from my ill-spent youth  ohmy

Let me complete the unspoken portion of that thought...

It's "hear, hear" as in, "Everybody hear what is being said because I agree with it!"
