The View From Your Window*

Window views from three very different parts of the world:

_DSC00068 

Above: a photo from Wendy Froud, who lives in a 17th century farmhouse on the outskirts of our village in Devon. "This is the view from my studio window," she says. "I opened it because it's SO dirty that when it's closed I really don't have a view. Sorry -- no animals in it (at least not that I can see) -- probably a faery or two though."


Out my office window 

Above: a Sonoran Desert view from Beth Meacham's editorial office in southern Arizona. The Santa Rita Mountains are on the horizon, and her horses are close by (though not pictured).

Above: the view from Christina Cairns' family room in Western Australia, close to the sea. "It's my favourite room in our house," she writes, "and this is the best spot to sit now the mornings are turning colder and winter is on its way here in the southern hemisphere.  I don't usually work down here, but I've been busy sewing lately, and this is the loveliest spot to sit and stitch."

Here we have two views from Ari Berk & Kris McDermott's livingroom window in Michigan.

In the picture above, we see part of their son Robin's imaginary solar system hanging on the glass. Ari writes: "The planets of Reptylea (and its moon), Vulpter, Zolan and Orta Putunya rise up between the viewer and the garden beyond, with our stone circle just visible in the distance. The second photo is of the same garden, our 'pretty-ish sort of little wildness,' this time showing our stone circle and a rabbit who happened by at just the right moment."

(Two points to you if you can correctly identify the Jane Austen reference.)

Above: Two photographs sent in by Mo Crow in Australia. "Here's two views from my window here in inner city Sydney (errr... actually their from the door onto the verandah if that's OK, the window is too fragile to open!)"  The lovely feline is Ariel P. Cat.

Below: A photograph from Shane Odom in Maryland. The view "looks out onto our deck in the mountains of western Maryland, our home, known as Flora Vale. A window cling in Celtic Spirals, our hanging 'Sky Chair,' named Glory, where I often take my laptop to write, and the bird feeder in the yard beyond. Flowers, and vines, and birds, and greenness."

Below: Two views from Valerianna Claff's window in New England. "I now live in Western Massachusetts," she writes, "in a magical - and very mythic - hemlock forest. When my mother first walked here, she said she felt as if King Arthur was just about to ride over the hill...."

Two more English views:

  View from my Window

Above: The view from Sam Rawling's window, in a small village in Oxfordshire. Sam writes: "Until very recently this had been my writing space for many years. As much it gives a sense of the view from my window, I think this picture also gives a strong sense of how it feels to be looking out. Which is, after all, a large part of the experience."

Below: Claire Massey has sent "the view from my bedroom window, which is where I have my desk. I've really loved seeing other people's views today. Mine isn't as attractive as most of them but I like red brick against a rainy grey sky, which is just as well really because it's usually raining here in Lancashire."
