Pretty envious of all your great views. The view outside my shop is the sets of large double doors to three smaller workshops in an old asbestos clad 1920s industrial park.

But my view is ever changing and I don’t mean with the seasons like yours are.

In the last 7 years alone I have had views of a warehouse for sports tape, a model maker for the advertising industry, an antiques restorer, 3x artists, a butcher, 3x sandwich making companies, a personal trainer, a tropical fish supplier, a canoe maker, a luthier, a recordingstudio/rehearsal room, 2x dental laboratories, a photograpy studio, a reseller of any old rubbish from ebay, a seller of antique clothing on ebay, 2x upholsterers and a printing press collective. These last 3 are still there and there are probably a few I have forgotten. Either a hell of a lot of new businesses fail or having me as a neighbour for any extended period of time cannot be tolerated.

Anyway a somewhat dreary nevertheless interesting view .
