View from my (very occasional) bedroom window, early one morning. Looking over Poldice valley.

View from my (very occasional) bedroom window, early one morning. Looking over Poldice valley. 

Dawn, August 2014. St Day, Cornwall.
Well, it's still my bedroom window even if I haven't spent more than 10 nights here in the past 5 years!
The building in front is the annexe to my parents house. It comprises a good sized ground floor kitchen and on the upper floor bedrooms and a bathroom. This annexe used to be a temporary bedding down place for tin miners who had worked a late shift; the property being in the possession of a tin mine captain.
Poldice Valley seen in the distance and with a chimney just visible, was a world centre of arsenic mining and production. Even today, 150 years later , nothing grows there and certainly no houses can be be built on the poisoned land. The life expectancy of the miners was horrendous! Not all Cornwall is romantic!!!

Is it your childhood bedroom Andy? Sweet memories ;)
3 years ago.
Andy Rodker club has replied to Tanja - Loughcrew club
Hi Tanja! Thank you but sadly not!
This is my parents' house which they bought in 1998. I moved here from London before I moved to Spain. I had this as my bedroom only for a year (2009-10) but it is still called Andrew's bedroom by my parents! And I still think of it as my bedroom. It still has most of my personal things there; nearly 1,000 books, music, paintings, etc,etc!

Our daughter left home to go to Uni in 1993, and we still have a lot of her 'clutter' hanging about in the house, Andy. The bedroom is now a guest room, but we still call it Liz's bedroom. Do you parents ever request that you remove some stuff? ;-)
Congrats on Explore.

Andy Rodker club has replied to Amelia Heath club
thank you, Amelia.
The same; it is also a guest room. But I only lived here for one year and I was already over 50!
I have relatively adult things there, not the teenage junk of the previous time I lived with my parents! The only thing is that occasionally I badly miss a book that I suddenly want for a class or a CD or something, but it's no great hardship. I do miss my wine cellar though! Ryan Air's weight restrictions preclude me from bringing it to Madrid. I tell my father to select a bottle from to time to time if he judges it might be at its peak or in danger of going downhill. I certainly don't begrudge them slowly getting through my collection and I enjoy them when I do return!
Sorry.
Another long answer.
The short answer is No!

... preceding commenters have taken all the good accolades, so I will simply agree with them: a striking eye-catching photograph ...

I suppose we all have "our own old bedroom windows" ... mine used to look out onto fields, groves of trees, and a beautiful stream valley with a pristine trout steam; a few years ago, all was dynamited and bulldozed for a noisy, busy interstate highway ... yup, I'm pretty bitter about that ...
