I'm sure some of you have incredibly awe inspiring views. And some of you probably don't.

So what do you see from your desk? Post a photo. Smiley

Don't think I could post a photo of the view from my desk at work. Directly outside it is the parking lot and miscellaneous buildings (I work in the office of an Amish shed and barn company). Beyond that is a big hill with trees and a house on top. I always wanted to go to the house and see the view of the valley from there. Smiley Looking up at in the distance is pretty as it is.

My view from the desk at home is the neighbor's 15' of side yard. *snort* As my grandma says "Are they making hay over there or what?" lol. It's not worth taking a picture of.

dude.  my desk is SCARY.

it's full of physics-defying stacks of things.  I think a picture would violate the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle and bring it all crashing down. Cheesy

My desk faces the wall so that my lovely wife's massage table can take up the majority of the office.  I have a laptop, so I can work anywhere anyway, so no complaints here Grin

Well, I don't have a desk at home and the one at work faces a wall that I have a ton of notes and memos taped to. The side wall has more with some photos of Jubilee, Suki and Bubba tacked up to remind me WHY I go to work. Phouka

Aww, lol. And whenever we lose Max we look underneath anything he can shelter under (like our coffee table..)

Don't have a camera, but from my desk, you have a view of a few houses and the roof to a nearby hospital.

No cameras allowed at work, but:  Well, I see cube walls.  And if I stand up, I see...  more cube walls.  LOL

Selected cube wall decorations:  Pictures of Hubby and baby, of course.  Next to one of the baby pictures is a wrapper from a Dove Promises candy that says, "Remember your first everything."  There is a calendar (with more baby pictures) on which I'm tracking my daily step count (as in, pedometer) and exercise for the month.  A subtle little sun-shrine with a battery-powered candle.  A Hello Kitty water dispenser.  A teapot.  A locker mirror so that I can see behind me, since my cubicle is arbitrarily configured so that my back is toward the door, which I HATE.  An official company ID badge for "Saint Dogbert", with picture of same and the job title "Patron Saint of Technology".  A fortune from a fortune cookie reading, "Buy many dream boxes."  A map of the Internet in 2001, complete with little notes tacked to it that say things like, "You may be here."  "Or here."  "Or possibly here."  Little buttons that say "The universe is a figment of its own imagination" and "Blessed are the Geeks, for they shall internet the earth."  A Cubes playset (the Tim-the-IT-guy one).  A binary LED clock.  A tiny red fridge.

I think that's most of the interesting stuff.  It's a surprisingly good representation of me, actually, I think.  A little tech, a little sun-worshipper, a little cute girliness, a bit of wife-and-mother, a little weirdness, and some practicality.

My view at home I could take a picture of when I get back there, but it's not that interesting.  It's just our living room.  Lots of baby toys, a TV, a coffee table, a bookshelf, some seating, some speakers.  Not as many electronic toys as there used to be.  A few pictures on the walls--though the most interesting one is actually above me as I sit at my computer (I'm sitting on the couch it's hanging over); it's the text of A Midsummer Night's Dream all on one big poster, with a little fairy-ish artwork at the center of the whole thing.  You can see into our kitchen (over a half-wall) from there too, but again it's...  a kitchen.  Cabinets, an island, a table, stove, fridge, microwave, that kind of thing.  The most interesting thing in either room is usually the baby.  Wink  If you could see out the windows (we usually keep the blinds and curtains closed right now in the interest of keeping the afternoon sun from heating the house up too much) you'd see other houses, and a backyard mostly devoid of grass.  (The clover's coming in pretty well this year, but there's still a lot of bare clay too.)

No camera here, but what I look at facing my computer at work is a wall.   Tongue  But I've got a pretty plant on my desk so that helps.

If I turn around and look out my window (yes, my cube has a window.. it's kinda neat) is the roofs of the building opposite and what may be a sweatshop.  Erk.

I had a plant on my desk before I had the baby.  Took it home during my maternity leave, and...  well, plants and our house have never mixed very well, and add a new baby into the mix...  the plant never made it back to my office.

Lucky.  My office space is in the middle of a fairly large building, so there's no hope of moving to a window cube at any point, even.  (On the other hand, it's in the middle of ground floor in a fairly large poured concrete building, so I barely notice storms going past unless they take out the power, and in the event of a tornado I'm already in very nearly the safest place for miles around.  But I miss the sunshine when it's not stormy!)
