Between my apartment and the station

This is the one block between the one my apartment is in and the one the station is in. Behind me there is a large apartment building. This part of this middle block consists of an empty field and a large parking lot. The station is behind the building on the left. This empty field used to be a rice paddy but the farmer has either given up or died. Right now, even though the surface is a foot or two below the road, the field is quite dry but it tends to flood during heavy rains. At the moment as you walk by, the sound is almost defining. The frogs have taken over and are calling for mates. It seems strange to hear this in the middle of an otherwise built up area. Usually the only place with this many frogs is in the countryside.
