The View From Your Window Contest: Winner #241

This, of course, is our final Window View contest. In some ways, I think of this feature as pure Dishness. It began with my desire to let readers know just how amazing and global the full readership is – something that is crystal clear in the in-tray but not necessarily to every Dish reader. I foolishly … Continue reading The View From Your Window Contest: Winner #241

The View From Your Window Contest: Winner #234

A flummoxed reader: Hell no. I … How … But … You know what? No. Just no. Another took to heart last Wednesday’s MHB: Based on the hinges of the window: Time Square Hilton. Room 420. Or a remote island? I’ve never been to Cape Verde, but this is definitely it. A more qualified shot-in-the-dark: You’re like a cat … Continue reading The View From Your Window Contest: Winner #234

The View From Your Window Contest: Winner #231

A frustrated reader lashes out: Jesus, could you get any more generic? Scrub brush, an outcropping with a wooden cross, telephone poles, white buildings with red-tiled roofs, a medium-sized range of hills in the background!? An image is beginning to crystallize in my mind of the typical winner of this contest. He is fat, bezitted, … Continue reading The View From Your Window Contest: Winner #231

The View From Your Window Contest: Winner #223

A reader throws up his hands: We must congratulate you on lulling us in to a false sense of security. This is quite possibly the hardest “view” you’ve ever posted. Our best guess is my dad’s: Williams County, North Dakota. We base this on the mountains, and the look of the buildings, which seem to resemble an … Continue reading The View From Your Window Contest: Winner #223

A reader asks: Is this a speed test this week?! Not for everyone: The Florida Panhandle? This is somewhere south of the Mason-Dixon Line. Another heads west: Definitely on the West Coast with a temperate climate that allows both exposed plumbing and palm trees. I could find nothing about “Zone’s” other than it’s a tech … Continue reading The View From Your Window Contest: Winner #221

The View From Your Window Contest: Winner #217

by Chris Bodenner After more than four years running the VFYW Contest (a feature increasingly innovated by Chas, aka Special Teams), I thought I would finally throw my own view into the ring. A reader writes: Somewhere in Barcelona. I had a very similar view from a hotel there once. Another: Paraguay, because of “Chacarita” on the … Continue reading The View From Your Window Contest: Winner #217

First up, a call to locate arms: I’m addicted to your weekly window contest. It is challenging, fun, and a great distraction.  But there might be more practical uses for the skills involved in solving the contest.  Recently, several bloggers have been using a photo posted on Twitter to figure out where the BUK missile system that … Continue reading The View From Your Window Contest: Winner #215

The View From Your Window Contest: Winner #213

A reader writes: You need wrong entries to start things off, right? So here’s one. But it does remind me of San Antonio de Escazu, Costa Rica, which probably means it’s time to go back. Another thinks we’re timing the view again: Totally stumped! But it’s GOTTA be either Rio or Buenos Aires because it’s … Continue reading The View From Your Window Contest: Winner #213

The View From Your Window Contest: Winner #210

A reader ventures a guess: Björlanda, Sweden. I believe that is the Fladen fishing store on the pier. Another looks east: This looks very much like the area of Hakone, Japan in which I took an excursion in 2009. Those old-time looking ships are part of the tourist industry. I’m pretty sure this is on Lake … Continue reading The View From Your Window Contest: Winner #210

The View From Your Window Contest: Winner #207

A reader writes: I think I may be on a winner here. The photograph is of the Derwent River in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. The tall building across the body of water is the Hobart Casino. My hunch is that the photograph was taken from the Bellerive or Rosny neighbourhoods near Kangaroo Bay, on the other … Continue reading The View From Your Window Contest: Winner #207
