While I am completely happy in our home in Mumbai, we do not have a ‘view’. Our choice of location was motivated purely by practicality – close to the highway to scoot to the airport or other parts and close to my partner’s mother.
On my December trip to Singapore, I stayed one night with a friend in ‘CBD’. We went to see the documentary ‘Naked DJ‘ at the Singapore International Film Festival then returned to this view. It was a most enjoyable evening sitting and chatting on the rather large balcony, with the evening lights our backdrop.
I’ve had the privilege of many fabulous views on my stays in various cities. Do you have a favourite?
Other Sunday Snaps:
At the moment, I enjoy looking out on a peaceful garden where red squirrels chase each other around 🙂 Lovely shot!
How fabulous! I can just imagine the squirrels antics are most amusing. 🙂
They are amazingly cute!
Now… I could alway send Zoe your way… then you would have impish kitten chasing squirrels!
That might be too much cute for me to handle!
Very nice view!!
We used to have the most amazing sunset view from our sunroom, but now it is mostly blocked by the new house that was recently built on the vacant land behind our house! 😦 😦
Well drat! Pity about the new house… part of the reason why when my partner is looking at land for a ‘get away’ type home (as we simply can’t afford a place in Mumbai!!), he’s looking at spots with a view like right off the water where there is no chance of construction of any kind spoiling it!
That sounds like a good plan!!
I love the view of Victoria Harbour from the hotel I stay in – in HK. But I also like looking out my back doors at my Japanese maple – simple but lovely.
Oh I should dig up some of my Victoria Harbour views – had lots from various HK hotels. Quite something, isn’t it?
However a Japanese maple right outside your back door at home? How lovely! We have a few trees too but those are just a little green between buildings, buildings and more buildings.
We are off to stay in a casita in La Manzanilla, Mexico in a couple of weeks. We’ve stayed there before. One of the reasons for returning is the view – of the tropical garden, the sea, and the sunset sky. There’s a photo of the sunset from our patio in this post:
though apparently since a recent hurricane the view is even better now.
That’s a view worth returning too!! And the birds, lizard and pet cat n dog. 🙂
Mmm… fav views… sunset on New Year’s Eve seeing a rare clear view of Fuji-san from the Tokyo Tower. The nearby mountain rising from rice fields by H’s family home… peaceful! Sunrise and mist over fields in rural Thailand near where we were volunteering… magical… Canmore… the top of the Sulphur Skyline Trail in Jasper…. the distant mtns from my temporary home in Brisbane… cities are great but nature is my pick. What a great question!
Oh wow! That sounds fantastic! Some of them sound almost surreal. 🙂
