The View From The Ivory Tower

The dispatch center that I work in is situated in a room that the road crews refer to as "The Ivory Tower" due to the fact that a) the building is white and b) the room is semi-circular in design.  Makes sense, right?  Even though we don't have windows that open, we do have a very big floor-to-ceiling window that looks out over the City of Norwich and sometimes affords us some pretty nice views.

I was clearing out files on myiPhone and it turns out that I had quite a few pictures that I'd taken from the window at work so not having too many other ideas for a blog post today I thought I'd go ahead and post the pictures that I had.  Why not, right?

6-9-2011 @ 5:45 PM - there was a bit of a storm moving in when I took this one
10-18-2011 @ 6:55 AM - looking towards the Laurel Hill section of the city over the harbor
11-15-2011 @ 6:38 AM - another sunrise over Laurel Hill
11-28-2011 @ 4:36 PM - evening starts to fall over downtown Norwich
11-28-11 @ 4:30 PM - meanwhile on the other side of the building, the sky was golden as seen from my boss' window
12-27-2011 @ 6:52 AM - early morning in downtown

1-22-12 @ 7:50 AM - one of our few snow storms of the season; those snow-covered cars are at the Police Department
2-24-12 @ 7:43 AM - another rare storm and of course I'm working again! 
3-29-12 @ 5:57 PM - the marina on a quiet March evening
Even if you don't have the view that we do from dispatch, wherever you may be today may your view be a spectacular one! 


  1. Those are some pretty awesome views! A few of them would make me wish I weren't inside the Ivory Tower!

    Did you Vote yet? I did!

  2. Nice, nice, nice! Love the changing views, each pretty in its own way. Even overcast, my view is still varied and interesting, although not very photogenic right now.

    Have a great Saturday. Big hugs, honey...

  3. spectacular! imagine that, what a view from your work window!

    hugs, bee

  4. What great views you have from work!

  5. Quite a few great windows catches, Linda! Not a bad view from yout work place at all. I doubt that you have a time to enjoy it though. Busy, busy bee :)

  6. Nothing like a dispatch center with a view. I remember the S/O one, there wasn't any windows at all.

    Have a terrific day. :)

    I wish I had a view like this at work, we barely have windows...and they just over look the parking lot.

  8. oh my!
    and from a phone no less
    just goes to show it's the photographer not the equipment that makes a good shot
    what a view you've got!

  9. You certainly do have a great view. My company traded a spectacular view for more space. We're still along the bay, but our view is blocked by an elevated roadway and the ever-busy Port of Seattle.

  10. Soooo jealous of your view, especially since my office is a windowless cave! Thanks for letting me stroll in there and share it once in a while!


Thanks for visiting!
