"Labas or hi. I and Renata are living on the fourth floor of one “modern-box” style buildings. Our flat is not far from a city center, about 20 mins by feet. We spent a lot of time sitting in our balcony, where the picture is taken. We drink coffee in the morning there and talk about everything. From our window you can see a kindergarten below, and the skyscrapers in the downtown.
The picture is taken sometime in the evening in mid November. Oh yes, and the maple. When it has leaves, you can see nothing except leaves"

"My name is Florian, it's a german name, but you can call me "olF". It's
my nickname spelled backward :-).
I've heard about the cool topic of your blog on the german internet
broadcast called "Ehrensenf".(www.ehrensenf.de) This word makes not really sense, but it contains all letter of the German word for "Televison": Fernsehen.
Let me say sonething about me and the view from my window. I'm 16 years
old, and live in the Eastern Part of Germany. The city is called Leipzig, it's the largest city in eastern Germany, except Berlin, with a population of more than 500,000. I live on the Southside, and I took a photo out of my "North-window". On the Photo there are two houses of my quarter. And in the background there is the high MDR-Tower.
(Television broadcast for Middle-Germany). Wikipedia maybe tells you something more about Leipzig, if you are interrested in.
Greetings from the wonderful Germany!"
"Here you can find the last picture I took before I moved to the US. It's a sunset in Darmstadt, Germany. The other photo shows the view from my room in Leicester, Massachusetts"

"When i was conducting computer work in a 20 story building in Wakikiki and man either jumped or was thrown from the flows above. He passed by my window and smashed on to the street below. However, his leg was split off in the process. In this photo his leg is on the 3 floor and the rest of him is covered on the street. The police had no idea he lost his leg"
The view from Will's window in Oahu, Hawaii. "Also view of leg after someone jumped from building"
Take what you want from the first view, I was suprised when I received it. However I thought I would post it to let you make your own mind up.

The view from Stefan's window in Furtwangen, Germany.
"My name is Stefan and I'm studying informatics in Furtwangen the most beautiful place in Germany. Furtwangen is located in the "Black Forest", which is well known for its Cuckoo Clocks. You would make me happy if I would find my foto on your website"
"These are to views from a window, the first one I had in Beijing, I sure hated it. The second one I have now in Cologne, Germany, the light is like this in the evenings this time of year and makes me feel at home"

"The picture show the view out of my kitchen window in Herne, Germany. It was taken on a rainy day during summer 2006. You see a garden that used from the people living in my block. Pretty much green for picture taken in a city with one of the highest population densities in Germany, that lies in the center of one of the biggest European agglomeration areas."
"I visited your site and was fascinated. I would like to contribute one of my pictures"

I just finished reading Tina's book It's All About The View. It's a book of her thoughts, life learnings and inspiration. I loved it. She has a bit in their on views and her window. So I thought I would put it up here for all to enjoy. (It's a privately published book, so if you are keen to get a copy let me know, and I'll see if I can put you in touch with her)
"I have a beautiful view from my dining room window. It's a large window framed by the branch of an old plum tree. It looks southwest towards the hills, and if I crane my neck to the right (which I wouldn't have to do if I did some pruning) I can see the main range covered in snow. Yet there are days when I don't see the view - I see only that the window needs cleaning. Life is all about the view: we can look past our daily trials and tribulations or we can choose to focus on them. Do you know what? We usually get what we focus on"
The view from Hauke's window in Regensburg, Bavaria, Germany.
"I'm living in the periphery of Regensburg, a city in Bavaria (southern Germany) with 150'000 residents. My neighborhood is a kind of development area in a former industrial zone. You can see the leavings: the old smokestack wich is maintained at the moment, and the modern Infineon-plant behind it. It's just about 500 meters to Danube river where you can recover in a big park"

The view from Justus Barg's window in Alster, Hamburg, Germany.
"Just stumbled over your blog and wanted to give you a big compliment: I really like the idea of giving people around the world a chance to take real and very personal views out of others windows. Please find attached the view out of my office
over the river Alster in Hamburg from the 4th floor"
"A view from one of my windows at the riverside of our old factory. I live in Kettwig / Germany, an area called "Ruhrgebiet" which is a former industrial area. The image shows an old bridge over the river Ruhr. It was 4 in the night, and you see some people working on the bridge. It was very loud, sleeping impossible, so I took some photos of the enlighted bridge, the surrounding trees and the river"
