The Daily Dish (Andrew Sullivan's news/political blog) has a feature called "The View From Your Window" where readers send in a photo that is, as it says, the view from their windows, wherever they happen to be all over the world. It's fascinating. They even published a book of these photos before the holidays.
This isn't the most compelling "view from your window" (even in my own life). But it's the view from my office so I see it every workday.
