    Just gorgeous

    What's it like for you? Wonderful green pastures? A busy city street?

    Fun or not, I'm going to repeat the comment already made which someone didn't like. Posting photographs of your workplace with comments (or without them) is a wildly foolish thing to do. People have been dismissed for much less. This is social media. Have you checked your policy recently?

    View over a pub, car park and railway line. Nice to see the occasional steam train go past although it shakes the building!

    My room overlooks an overgrown courtyard but the greenery makes me smile. I have thought of hanging some fake fish on the outside so it would look like an aquarium

    A busy town centre. I frequently see minor crashes, fender benders at 2 busy junctions. Traffic jams when people block yellow boxes.
    I can people watch all day if I wish as my desk and PC are angled towards the window.
    Horns blaring at least 20 times a day as people don't realise how the filter lights work, and a fire station behind us so my phone conversations get drowned out by the sirens.

    This brings me back!

    My office looked out over a courtyard with a wall at the back facing me on the street side, if you can picture that.

    Well it was the most hilarious thing, as the pigeons and various other birds used to gather on top of the wall and FORNICATE for our amusement. God how I laughed when having a meeting in my room, and the inevitable would happen.

    Good memories of that place.

    Thanks for this and the one above. It's a good warning. We wouldn't expect anyone to post their photo if it's not appropriate.

    People should not be encouraging this, and I hope the forum team are not contemplating putting this in the newsletter.

    "Posting photographs of your workplace with comments (or without them) is a wildly foolish thing to do."

    It's out the window so it's not a picture of where you work (unless in super rare instances like mine where you work inside an office inside another building)

    And if that is the case, you just ask first

    Sorted!

    My backyard, as I have a working from home contract. I've not quite got as far as setting up the laptop in the garden (because I'd never get any work done) but it's very tempting in the summer.
    My alternative office aka Skoda generally has a fine view of assorted car parks.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.
