Sideways views

November 2011, © Celia Her City

It was the enormous window that sold me on this office, as well as the fact that (though in an ancient building) the space was in like-new condition.

You might not think the view would amount to much, but near the window the sideways views are pretty decent, especially in weird weather, or when the daylight fails, and the buildings outside begin to light up.

The Fisher Building is quite a glorious thing, with a facade fairly encrusted with fancy old glazed brick and terra-cotta.  To be honest, I waste time looking at it each day.

What I have is a real urban view—with nary a tree or blade of grass in sight—but with enough atmosphere to give a Dreiser novel like Sister Carrie a run for its money.
