The second sketch book entry below is of the house right next door and the view from the upstairs balcony (no one was renting it).
The third entry below using both pages is a view of the town square from the upstairs flat balcony. I stood with my sketch book on the edge of the balcony and happily sketched the views before me. I may use water colour to colour it in from a photo. This is a great example of urban sketching.
