corner view "cityscapes"



Hi everyone! This week´s theme comes from Cele and is "cityscapes." She suggested that we go to the highest point in our town and show what we see. This was taken from a spot in the medieval part of my town looking out at the center. I know... the center of town also looks pretty medieval... 
Sophie´s idea for next week´s is "the beach." Hey Joyce you are up next. Now if I can only remember where I left my bucket and shovel. Happy travels!

Okay I´m off to Argentina!
P.S. Help! My list of links is all over the place. Can someone tell me if you can copy and paste these from the sidebar, because Blogger is giving me grey hairs. Thanks!

I did not know we had to go to the higher point and show what we see before posting but there is sometimes funny coincidences ...

Bonjour, voici ma 1ère participation mais je ne savais pas non plus qu'il fallait trouver un point de vue élevé.

trinsch said…

I did not know about going to higher point, so my post is urbans landscapes in a large sense!
Yours looks very nice.
Ian said…
Great view.

Sorry, like Isabelle, I didn't know about the 'high point' bit, so my photos were taken from the lowest point possible: sea level. Well, I suppose they could have been lower if I'd been under the sea at the time.

That is a beautiful city view! Hope you have a lovely time in Argentina :)

I'm missing from the list of links this week but my corner view is here.

I would love to have a stroll through those streets!! When and where do we meet??? -lol-
XXX, Carmie.
Kari said…
Hi Jane,
I love your picture.
I think I'm just going to have to pack my bags and come see spain!!!
Hola Jane! I just put a post about "city scapes"!
Saludame mi Argentina!
besos
MyrtilleD said…
J'avais aussi des photos prises de l'arc de triomphe et je les ai rajoutées.

We don't really have a high point!! I ran up some outside steps of a building. You're really getting around aren't you??? We don't have a beach either but will do what I can. Ali.
Crescent Moon said…
I thought your photograph was a painting at first. It doesn't look modern at all. I think that's wonderful!
I also didn't realize about the "highest point" part,
cheli said…
no sé Jane, pero creo que el punto más alto de la ciudad es desde la torre de San Vicente, pagas, creo, un euro y te dejan subir hasta el campanario, te acompaña un guía,merece la pena, no obstante, tu foto es muy chula....
g. said…
I so look forward to coming here! Great view and your corner view thing is so much fun!
Kathy said…
Lovely viewpoint! Off to Argentina??? Wow!
state of bliss said…
Just beutiful... makes me wanna visit Spain. Maybe one day, who knows?

Thank you for sharing Jane :) This Corner View project is great!

Have a sunny day,
Kasia

oh... this is absolutely fabulous... my best trips to europe have been to spain simply for that medieval architecture. wow. what a view! and i'm glad to see i wasn't the only one who missed that we had to go UP for this one! so my view is at city level this week. safer for everyone.
Francesca said…
I had no idea about the highest point instructions! I love the view from your highest point, though. I really must tell me whether you have one of those magic windows!
aimee said…
just tested copying and pasting my sidebar by going into the template but blogger won't do it. so i guess for the sidebar, you'd have to add the links one by one :(
salut Jane,je pense que je vais me remettre à l'espagnol et venir en Espagne...Je prefère d'ailleurs ces villes très "typiques" plutôt que la côte.C'est très joli !
Bonnie said…
Love the photo of your city !! I miss beautiful buildings like that !!

As for the links. Why not just direct people to your side bar instead of putting the links into your post each week ? Alternatively, we could leave a comment on your blog with the link to our posts when we've done them and then people can hop around from your comment section.

I can teach you how to do it so that it looks like this ...

Bonnie in AustraliaIt's easy !

Anyway, those are my suggestions. I didn't know about the high point thing ... must have missed that along the way but I took my photo from a high point anyway so I must have known intuitively !!
Bonnie said…
ok ... so it would not have the 'it's easy' right after the link ... don't know what happened there !! ha ha.
Joyce said…
Jane, I'm already getting busted with my camera in stores, parking lots next climbing buildings!! LOL... You are a hoot! Argentina"! You are one lucky gal! Have a wonderful time. Many hugs...

PS I notice I was following you on blog visits, but now I have to stop and get ready for work today instead of tomorrow. I wish I could help in the list problem but I'm lucky I can sign on the computer. LOL... xoxo
be still my heart! so beautiful!

Don't know about the pasting thing. Trying to figure out my blog is giving me grey hairs all the time too!
outi said…
ehe, i just now realized that we were supposed to show the view from the HIGHEST point of the city.. oh well;)

your view looks brilliant!
janis said…
What a magnificent view Jane...thanks :)
Nice "point de vue" !!!! and lol for the colour of your hair !!! Beso
caitlin said…
Mm hmm, Mmm hmm. I love it.

Beaches huh? I'll see what I can do, if I can't get out to a beach I may end up with a shovel, pail, and sand dumped in my bathtub. That counts right?
Elizabeth said…
I didn't realize we had to go to the highest point but worked hard on my post anyway! And your photo is just gorgeous, Jane.

Thank you, as always, for organizing this adventure every Wednesday. I usually just copy and paste from your blog for the list of participants and it seems to work...
Dana said…
Just lovely. I think it's time to start thinking of Spain as an upcoming destination.
malo said…
I love the earth colors of the buildings and the mountains in the background. What a beautiful city!
Ian said…
Jane, I've tidied up the links a bit. Try copying and pasting them from my blog and see if it helps.
i am not sure anyone can argue with europe for city beauty.
happy travels!
me and alice said…

Allison said…
They sure don't build 'em like that in the States... sites I only dreamed about from picture books. Lovely photos, but I didn't expect anything less.

Set up went well, but tomorrow starts the real work.
Lisa said…
Once again your photo is leaving me speechless! So beautiful, that's what the USA is missing....really OLD buildings made from what the earth provides!

Have a great trip in Argentina!
Lisa :)
Wow, your area of Spain looks beautiful. I do so miss the super old buildings, shapes and beauty of Europe...making me home sick (but in a good way!). How beautiful.

I am loving the Corner View posts, thanks for setting it up!
MisterE said…
Your city looks charming and full of history! Thanks for sharing.
Beautiful. Makes me think I should drag all of the toddlers downtown and make them them trudge up to the top of the Washington Monument. Or maybe not.

I just dropped all of your links into blogger and made them into a paragraph with commas. Let me know if you want me to e-mail you the html code for that. (if so I'll need your e-mail)
Di said…
Hmm. not sure I can make it to the highest point this week as I am off for the weekend on Friday - maybe on Monday....but beach I can definitely do! I love the beach....
Cele said…
I love your medieval city!!!!

Espero te haya gustado Argentina!!

Beso!
Dorit said…
Lovely old buildings! So close and cozy :)
And thanks for leaving a comment on my blog, Jane.
Jenell said…
I'm heading to the beach this weekend (California) and would love to share.

Jane, how can I participate in next week's corner view?
Cate said…
oh, those roof tiles! and the church in the distance. beautiful.
MODsquad said…
Now this is Italy! Beautiful!

Oh, don't get me started on Blogger... mine are skipping grey and going straight to white!

Happy Day, Jane!
Janet said…
ditto on not knowing about the highest point photo, but how funny that i posted my photos from a helicopter!

love those buildings - especially the one way in the back.
denise said…
That is quite the view - lovely city.
Beatriz Kim said…
How exactly do you go to cyber Argentina? Do you have any recommendations? I was born there, but I came to the U.S. when I was 8. I'm dying to see it, cyber of for real!

Also, thank you for visiting and commenting on my site. I really appreciate it.

This blog seems very interesting! I'm not sure what's going on, but looks like everyone is having fun!

Have a great day!
Ida Nielsen said…
I love those old houses! Pretty, pretty...
n a t s u m i said…
Buildings are so pretty! I don't mind to take a walk in the city. yes, it must be fun!
kim said…
hi! i'm late, but sure glad i came - i swear it reminds me of fribourg
Inna said…
Me encanta la vista de tu ciudad! I wish we would have towns like that in Finland too. And by the way, I like your blog a lot. :)
Maria Killam said…
OMG 60 comments! You are a force to be reckoned! Love that image, I wish I lived somewhere so filled with character, I can only wish and dream over here!
epe said…
argentina??? when??
My dear friend Lisa, from ModSquad, sent me your way. Could you add me for Corner View this week? I can't wait!
xo, amanda @ www.kiddio.org

Jane, Mc Gillicutty suggested in my blog comments that we start a corner view blog, where we can all post there. What do you think? This is what I said:
"we could easily set up a Corner View blog and make everyone a contributor, then we can all post there. I don't mind doing it, if everyone wants this. I think the format now works well, because we all get to visit other blogs, but we could post in our own blog and then in the communal one, maybe? We should ask Jane, as she started this. I'll get in touch with her."
I couldn't find an email address for you, so I'm posting this mega long comment here! :)
Pamela said…
Hello, Jane. I'd like to join in with Corner View - would you please tell me what I need to do?

Thank you.
Pamela said…
Thanks for your response, Jane. When I post my picture on my blog, do I list all of the names that are at the end of your post or just link back to you for others to see who else participates?
