Made to measure views

So I promised photos of the apartment some time ago. This isn't quite photos of the whole place but here's my office. It's alright, isn't it?



But yes, that is a brick wall I look out on.

Back in the summer, before I'd even seen our new apartment, I was at an Arvon course outside Inverness - at Moniack Mhor. This was the view from my window. I made a joke that I wanted to paste the view up on my window when I got to Bangkok. Ha; I had no idea that unless I wanted to look out on concrete I REALLY would need to stick up a picture.

All I needed to do was blow up my digital image onto really large photo paper and I could have Scotland outside my window. Voila:



Then I got to thinking.... I could do a few - dependent on my mood. It's a sunflowers in Lopburi kind of day today:




Tomorrow I might be homesick. Let's have Kent in July:




How about back to Asia? How about Kuala Lumpur at night:




Oh HOW much fun can we have here? Hastings beach anyone? With killer seagull...




Right; okay. I think it's time to go back to work now. Head down...

Oh I could play endlessly but I think I have work to do!

Jen said...

Oh, you are so clever and funny... love the killer seagull!

Jayne said...

Killer seagull! These are brilliant, what a lovely idea. Not sure what story I'd write with Killer Seagull peering in, though!

Flowerpot said...

WE have lots of killer seagulls here I could send over to you!

Su said...

Oh, what a great idea! Although I would be terrified if there were a giant seagull outside my window!

All the best, Boonie

The seagull. Definitely the seagull. Scary as hell. Brilliant. 2nd choice KL. xx

Jenny Beattie said...

Jen, thanks. On reflection that seagull looks rather benign...

Jayne, no, imagine the crap... oh no, perhaps not.

Flowerpot, NOOO please don't.

Su, thank you.

Thanks Boonie.

RTC, thank you. I must say I'm rather fond of KL at night.

Brilliant. I like the idea of a different view every day. You should definitely go for it!

Talli Roland said...

Love your office - in particular the Scottish view!

sheepish said...

Oh how did you do that? I am going to post some photos of my new study on Friday but I can't manage anything like yours. I am very jealous. Is it done with Photoshop or something similar?

Angie said...

I LOVE your office, especially the fun throw rug.

The Kent view is my favorite, and the seagull is most terrifying!

Hi there, new here, thought I'd pop by and say hi. Great idea to liven up a view!

Helen said...

Lovely office (how did I miss this for so long? I love pictures of offices). You are very clever to change the view.
