View From Your Window.
I'm sure there is an old thread that has this idea. I've hunted low and lower but to Noah veil.

(if anyone remembers it, please send me the link and I'll merge the threads)

But anyway ... I watched KC's wet video thread this morning (not the pipe and slippery one, the other one) ... the wall of white rain (Noah veil? geddit?) and we here (in KL) were experiencing the same thing. I wasn't sure if the thunder clap I heard was on the video or was outside my window (it was both).

Unlike KC, the rain here was welcome as Indonesia has been setting itself alight again and Monday was unbearably unbreathable.

Here are some pics from my window:

This is the rain. As I said, the rain clears 'The Haze' so there is at least some visibility. With The Haze all you can see is white! So RACIST!

Here's the Hazeless and rainless view at dawn:

Here's another one with a bit of zoom. It reminds me of a Chinese water colour:

And here's the view from the other side, which is not actually from my window but seen through the glass of the moving lift/elevator:

And Happy Independence Day, Malaysia!

Edited to add: From my window, as it hit midnight (about an hour ago) I watched over 30 (I lost count) simultaneous firework displays. Ohmy


And for fun:
This one is actually from Brisbane so it doesn't really belong here but as I was doing the uploading thing ...

Can you spot the snake?
Without zooming in!

Isn't Intelligent Design amazing? Praise be!

RE: View From Your Window.
Yeah, found the little bugger! Had to do a x4 finger stretch on the tablet to do so though!

Nice picks. Perhaps we need a "Pictures I have taken" type thread for general shots?

But this is weird, was just thinking about starting a "Through your window" thread this a.m.!!

My view is of the boring houses and cars across the road out the front and, slightly more interesting, out the kitchen window, for watching the wildlife, whilst I do the washing up, in the trees and bushes alongside the stream. Squirrels, crows or magpies trying to get the eggs or young of the wood pigeons is sadly dramatic,

I FOUND THE SNAKE!!!

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I've been here since the beginning of 2015. I thought you knew that ... the traditional costume of my new flatmate wasn't a clue? Big Grin


Also,
For Gloucester (and other newer members), there's this thread where TTA's proper photographers display their talents:

My shitty efforts were just using an iPhone.

RE: View From Your Window.
I cheated a bit and stood outside one of the living room windows...DLJ - don't try this at home. Tongue

Somewhere in that tree a squirrel is chattering at the intrusion.

Ziggy and Lady are trying to figure out how to get said squirrel.

*I found the snake...maybe he could come here and get that pesky squirrel. Undecided

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

I saw it right away, but then it's what I do a lot - walk around in nature and watch animals...they fascinate me, always have.

RE: View From Your Window.
Thanks for the heads-up DLJ. Now, shall I unleash my entire portfolio in one go? Consider

Now, try to be selective!

It is probe with photobucket that puts me off, pop-up, lock-outs, spurious (I hope) virus warnings type adverts , . . Takes me six attempts sometimes to post a picture.

Got a better hosting/posting service to recommend?

Tiny pic. Works for me.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

Try https://imgur.com/ or https://sli.mg/. I think both of them are almost flawless.
