Photo Monday – The View From my Window

We spent a few days with my parents when we were on vacation.  They still live in the house I grew up in and I still sleep in my old room.  It’s been redecorated since but it’s still my room.  I had my desk in front of the west facing window.  And my dad, working in the next room, had his desk against the west facing window too.  I remember hearing the old matrix printer as I fell asleep.  Dad always apologized for the noise but I liked it.  It was rhythmic and lulled me to sleep.

Back to my window.  Growing up, I loved working at my desk.  Drawing, studying, thinking.  I would look up and see trees and, beyond them, a field.  Sometimes, cows were grazing and I could hear them.  My favorite moment, my dad’s too, was sunset.  As the sun went down, the light would turn an incredible warm golden shade.  I would often stop what I was doing and just look at it.  I liked it best in Winter but Summer is pretty decent too.  Since I’d brought my tripod along to catch the sunrise, I decided to catch that golden light.  Keep a little piece of it forever.  It isn’t as awesome as watching the whole thing from my window and it isn’t Winter but it’ll do…

I love it.

PS: I took the photo from the living room window because it was easier but I had the same view from my room.
