An oasis in the city
There’s a tiny courtyard squeezed inside terrace walls
Where I sit and have coffee in a secret garden
And reflect on the mirrored wall
…and enjoy the serenity in every corner.
A trompe-l’oeil leads me to this secret oasis
Where a comatosed cat sleeps on a leafy wall
And a semi-comatosed Pumpkin watches from above!
Here the doves are silent …
And if I am very quiet, I can hear water trickling
As I drink in the details
And envy the soporific life of its owners
Rahni and Taz…
For theirs is anything but a dog’s life
Hidden amongst the petunias and nasturtiums!
I could sit there for a long time Francesca soaking up the ambiance. I think as photographers we notice the detail -textures – colours – light & shade.
A lovely series of pics.
You make us see what seems to be the common world come to life.
you remind us to seek places we have forgotten when we grow up
the world is so beautiful, alas we are often too busy to just notice it…
Thank you for opening our eyes and make us notice again, the little things which are so important for our soul.
That house looks good enough to live in, but wait I do live there, the photos are are fantastic thank you Frannie XXX J & B
what a perfect spot to sit and sip a cup of tea and just relax, x
Quite charming and a true reflection of the delightful people (and dogs!) who live there in the hidden oasis. Love it.
