Children playing ball and skyscrapers so tall,
People walking by,planes as they fly,
Creeks flowing along and buskers singing songs,
Flowers in bloom and cars that go zoom.
From my window I see all.

Ok so I`m not a poet but then this is a photo thread anyway.

Post your most interesting view from a window.

I guess I could wait and see if anything or anyone interesting goes by, but it's 34 C (91 F) outside and with the humidity it feels like 41 C (106 F) which is too hot for us Canadians, so there is not a lot going on on the street outside my window. Here is a shot at the back of the house of my vegetable garden.



At the front of the photo are two rows of carrots, them a couple of rows of beets, then green beans and finally cucumbers. Next to the fence are my tomato plants. You can see the chicken wire fence around the garden to keep out the little rabbits that I'm sure would love to get the carrot tops.

When in any part of the year does that normally happen? Not very, as far as I know of. I think it was about 86°F (30°C) or so for the high today here!

When I bought this house I had a distant sea view from this window, right in the centre, then about ten years ago they built a housing estate and the new houses they built with distant sea views were charged extra! My sea view has gone and has been replaced with the top of a roof - I hope someone builds in front of them and they lose their view too.

That white ball thing in the distant left of the photo is the weather radar.



A larger view of the weather radar ball!

And it's suppose to get even hotter today, 36 C (97 F) and with the humidity 44 C (111 F) It's suppose to last till Thursday when a cold front moves through and it will got down to 28 C . I hope so I can't take this heat.

Papa Cardinal is glad for this week's theme, as he never found seeds on the porch rail till today. He chirps and sings all day, and mama shows up sometimes, but I haven't found their nest yet. Sorry it's not a clearer picture.

I wanted to get a picture of my (indoor only) cats wiggling at the window, drooling at a bird so close, but the cardinal was too savvy to stick around for that.

Oh, the view is from the home office, where I work when not traipsing around Pennsylvania (and where maybe, once in a while, just a teeny tiny wee bit... I get sidetracked by FunTrivia. )

This is the view from my sister's kitchen window. My brother-in-law built the fence and gate, and I helped stain it. There's a park beyond with baseball and softball diamonds. (You can see me, too, reflected in the window )

I've never seen a "little red X" through a window before. That's all I can see right now. Is it my computer?

Since my life is on the road, lots of my photos are taken from out my window or windshield. However, this photo was taken out of one of the windows at the top of the Gateway Arch in St Louis, Missouri, at a height of 630 feet. This is of downtown. More information about the arch can be seen here.

This was the view of the rooftops of Gdansk old town from our hotel window, where we stayed last month.

A view from the glass fronted doors of the school in Nansha where I will be working once or twice a week from September. The pagoda affords great views which I will bore you with in the future.

This picture was taken last year from a moving window, namely a bus.
It's of the Rhine valley, the foreground is Switzerland and the background is Liechtenstein.

Taken through a window overlooking the garden. A pigeon and a maggie share a meal:

Great views, everyone

This is the view from my window. It's nothing special, just a lot of buildings. You can tell it's winter by looking at the trees.

I posted pics of the views from the front and rear windows in the February Photo-a-day thread. So here's the jumble that I can see from the side window of the block when I'm chucking rubbish down the chute.

This is a photo taken from the 14th floor of the Forrest Building in St Georges Terrace, Perth, where I teach a class. Not a really good picture I am afraid, but that's because it was taken at an angled window with very little room to manoeuvre and there isn't much light because of the weather and the tall buildings. However, the sun came out for a brief moment and I got this picture which shows the Barracks Arch and Parliament House. The Arch is all that is left of the Enrolled Pensioner Guards Barracks, built in 1863. The Barracks were used for housing Enrolled Pensioner Guards and their families who protected the public against the convicts in the mid to late 1800s. The majority of the Barracks were demolished in the 1960s to make way for the freeway behind it and also to give people a better view of Parliament House. However, people cared more about the historical Arch than about a view of Parliament House and public protest managed to save this small remnant of the Barracks from demolition. By the 1960s, the Arch was in poor condition and crumbling. There were no brickies in WA with the skills needed to restore this type of structure, so my great-uncle Ernest was brought over from South Australia to help accomplish the job. So naturally I have a soft spot in my heart for the Arch.

Great story, MG.

From outside the school room ... there's a verandah that's gauzed in which is why it looks like that.
