The Grand Union Canal is only a few minutes walk from our house. Once there we're into quiet and calming countryside. During the Spring the hawthorn and irises make it a scented bit of heaven. As things warm up the butterflies and dragonflies congregate on the banks and reeds.

The rest starts hereCollapse )

I had a few other things planned for this series, but they didn't work out, so firstly the view from my office

both under a cut as they are panoramasCollapse )

I always think of Wolverhampton as being flat, but its not as this picture shows. Indeed its what the Hampton bit means, apparently (from Wulfrun's Heantun). Anyway I happen to work in a building at the top of the hill in the centre. Our windows don't open, unfortunately, hence the bit of reflection from the windows.

Another thing: West Park

photosCollapse )

Its a wonderful Victorian park, recently restored and is just such a haven in the city, you can wander around and really get away from the city. Its tardis like - seemingly much bigger when you're inside, compared to driving round it.

Map of the city centre my office is circled in red and West Park is just to the north west.

1. Name (LJ or real, as you like): Joan

2. Where do you live? Durham, North Carolina

3. Is this where you grew up? No.

4. If not, how long have you lived here? Almost 2 years

5. Do you think you will see out your days here? Honestly, I don't know.  We love our house and our neighborhood, but this is not our "dream house" (we really want a Craftsman-style bungalow).  We also bought this house to accomdate my parents (who live with us).  If we could find something we love that we can afford, we may stay.

6. Other places you've lived. Denville, NJ (where I grew up); Amherst, Mass (where I lived after college); Somerville and Cambridge, Mass (lived there for grad school and jobs); Carrboro and Chapel Hill, NC (where I lived before this house)

7. Camera(s) Canon PowerShot A95 - nothing special, but I really like it

1. Name (LJ or real, as you like): Karen

2. Where do you live? San Diego, California

3. Is this where you grew up? No.

4. If not, how long have you lived here? Almost a year now.

5. Do you think you will see out your days here? Doubtful. We love it here, but the real estate prices are ridiculous. Plus we'd like to live closer to family. It all depends on my husband's job offers in the next year or two. (We're here for him to do a post-doc now.)

6. Other places you've lived. Dallas, TX (where I grew up); College Station, TX (college); Boulder, CO; Boston, MA

7. Camera(s) I own a few cameras, but the only one I shoot with regularly is my Nikon D70.

1. Name (LJ or real, as you like)
Sarah

2. Where do you live?
northwestern Connecticut

3. Is this where you grew up?

Yep, same town and everything. Both of my parents grew up here, as did one grandparent on each side (and some relatives even farther back than that...)

4. If not, how long have you lived here?

I spent seven years (eight?) living elsewhere in college and my early 20s, but other than that I've been here since day one.

5. Do you think you will see out your days here?

I don't really know. In theory, I would like to, but it all depends. If we ever have children, it's quite likely we will stay. If we choose not to have children, though, we may well move somewhere a little more interesting someday. ;-) At this point, though, due to family and work situations, we aren't going anywhere anytime soon.

6. Other places you've lived.

upstate New York, northern Virginia, and a short stint in England

7. Camera(s)

I currently have a Canon Powershot A60, but I just (yesterday!) ordered a Canon Powershot A540, which should arrive tomorrow or the day after. Whoo! We also have a film SLR (a Nikon N60), but it doesn't see the light of day much anymore.
