Saturday Photo: Time for a Little Rest in the Middle of the City

This has been a very busy, slightly stressful week, so the photos today are of islands of tranquility in the city.

The first is a tiny front garden with a Japanese lantern that rests the eye.

The second is a flourishing grape vine, glimpsed through what was once a porte cochère, the opening that was used to lead horses to stables at the back of the lot. The building has begun to lean a bit with the passage of time, sort of the way I feel today!

I lived in an apartment built from a porte cocheré. The only interruption in the straight was a section containing the bathroom. Sort of like living in bowling lane.
