I love this photo for many reasons. 1) Aside from looking amazing from all the elements in the actual picture, this is actually a picture of what was once a canal lock. Technically it still is a canal lock, but something tells me it isn't getting much use anymore.

2) This photo invokes many thoughts/feelings/memories. Rorschach says that, "Despite being an adult he can pretend those gates lead into some post apocalyptic world / wasteland a la the Book of Eli or Fallout." I agree 100%. Having just replayed Half-Life 2 a few months ago it reminds me of the very long "canal system" stage of the game. I think some of the graffiti in the picture actually says "Beware of Head Crabs." But that could be referring to something completely different.
I hope all of you are having a great holiday. I'm currently out of town visiting my family and some of my girlfriend's family. It's been fun and crazy. I'll be catching up with some of you as time allows, so don't think I'm neglecting you.
