The View


I think you have to click on this picture to get the full photo. It was made using the photo stitch camera option. It is a bit picture to load I think. Sorry if you are a sad ass with dial up. I think it has stitched together very well. The scene is about 120 degrees.

It is a view from our balcony and our living area. R tried to convince me to highrise living when we were in our house. I did not like the idea at all until I saw our present place. I never take our views for granted. It is ever changing and beautiful and looks gorgeous at night with lights everywhere.

Sitting here at the pc, I can watch tv too and also look out the windows and talk to R. Life is good. I deserve it.

  8. 'it is a view from our balcony and our living area'. So the answer is yes, but it is often too windy and not pleasant.

    Remarks like that when I'm in this mood will get your cameraface ripped off.

  14. The Housing Commission flats in Williamstown have the best view in Melbourne. How agonising. Yes well maybe the Rialto is better, but rather crass, showing too much. And you have to pay. Meanwhile it's an astonishing fact that these welfare towers have a magnetic attraction, encircled by thick colonies of yuppies. Richmond, Fitzroy, Collingwood, Carlton....it goes on. Why is that? I don't know. But maybe it's the Left Bank syndrome: poverty, a phallic symbol.

  15. I am sure Miss Brownie is not.

    Yes, I think they would be excellent views. The only problem when they kick the poor out and sell them off is no balconies. They can be added though.

  16. Miss Brownie called me a curmudgeon and I didn't even know what it meant. I'm still not sure.
    The South Melbourne flats have a good view too; thirty floors. I can probably say I've visited every commission block in Melbourne, except Kensington. I did hear Kensington went private, I'm not sure.
    I suppose you've been to Williamstown? You can get the ferry from St Kilda, but only in Summer maybe.

  17. Funny, Kensington is the only one I have been in.
