City Garden Parties

Looking down from my roof into a backyard garden party. It was insanely loud for such a small group of people. It must have had something to do with the small space surrounded by brick and concrete. Because I’m in the front I am not subjected to the noise, but my poor neighbors in the back have to deal with this all summer.

But what are you going to do, tell people not to use their courtyards? Don’t have parties?
