If You Can't Wake Up in Paradise . . .

If your like me you don't have the luxury as to picking your Idyllic ocean front villa some where, or for that matter parking your boat in one... as of yet at least...but we dream don't we.

So what do you see out your window in the morning?

Well....we all want to know what that view of the world looks like from your little corner of it...and here is your chance to dust off that old camera and get a little artistic with lighting, composition and all that jazz..The only rule is it indeed must be a picture out one of our windows as to what you do actually see.

I have seen beautiful pictures of alleys, train yards, farm fields, brick walls and yes even roofs of other houses...So put away the Bah-Humbug attitude and join in the fun.

What does your room with a view look like.

I woke up to this today.

God is indeed a masterfull landscaper.

I would post a picture - but the view is simply a house accross the street. and besides, the Judge says I am no longer allowed to aim my telephoto lens in her direction

So I've drawn a picture
