Laneway love

The best way to walk in the downtown core is via the laneways. These hidden sub-streets travel within leafy neighbourhoods, unseen from the roads where homes rest against each other in eccentric rows. The lanes are like paved spines; their vertebrae: dilapidated garages with weakened roofs and moss-strewn fences lining narrow backyards. Here there are hidden windows and gates, prowling cats, broken bikes, brightly painted doors, and rogue gardens. And small glimpses of the secret lives of city-dwellers.
