Well, it's a fairly clear day here so I'll go first. The North and East are the views I get sitting here at my computer desk.

So what's up with the "Paintballing" Newmarket?

And does someone really take horses across your street?

And what's up with parking on the grass?

Jealous! When I visited MEL, we stayed with a friend right next to the market. I miss having the choice of amazingly fresh fruit (and insanely cheap).

Not a clue, someone's clearly put that in error!

Quoting Revelation (Reply 17):

Yes, the town (Newmarket) is the UK centre for horseracing, national HQ of the Jockey Club and home of the National Stud and loads of stables. They have horse paths all over town between stables and training runs

Quoting Revelation (Reply 17):

The company doens't have enough parking for everyone, so they paid for a green plastic mesh to be laid on the grass to enable parking on it without damaging it.

The first shot shows the other end of my dorm building and the top of Danforth Dining Center; you can also just make out Slater Hall of the Hill Court (a.k.a. "Phase") residency complex on the left. The second one shows more of Danforth and a little bit of Wilder Tower, as well as the bridge to Phase. The last one shows the Towers residence complex, with Anderson on the left and Wilder on the right, and the Sage Art Center in the foreground.

Normally in that last view, you'd be able to see the city skyline. At night, there's a very bright white strobe on an antenna on or near the top of one of the buildings, so I'll try and get a photo with the strobe if I remember later since you can't see any of the city at the moment.

Here's my view on a nice fall evening:

And here's a picture of the sunrise at 6:30 AM the day before that last one was taken:

Great thread! Here are some photos I just took after lunch in Shanghai. They are from the office, which is located in Puxi, on the eastern fringe of the French Concession

Shanghai - View towards People's Park

View north towards People Park

Shanghai - View towards The Bund and Pudong

View east towards The Bund and Pudong. You can see the tip of the Oriental Pearl Tower

Shanghai - View towards Xintiandi

View southwest towards Xintiandi, which is mainly (bad) restaurants and (dodgy) bars frequented by tourists

Cheers

Here is one more. This is the view that greeted me every morning when I first moved to Shanghai a year ago. You can clearly see People's Park, Raffles City, The Bund (you can't really see it per se), and Pudong

Shanghai - View from JW Marriott
