I’m constantly amazed by how things appear to change even as they largely remain the same. “Simplicity №1” was photographed in this location back in May. Returning some weeks later, I was annoyed by new “No Parking” signs affixed to the wall. Yesterday, the signs were still there—but so were a number of parked cars.  🙂
