    A mixture of gorgeous Art Nouveau-style pump station and sluice / flood control..er...thingy (I believe that's the technical hydrological engineering term for it) in Northwest Germany that we utterly failed to get into a few weeks ago.

    Regardless of what 28DL thinks about the acceptability, or lack thereof, of tearing the hell out of after-the-fact entry deterrents, locks, barricades, what-have-you, I certainly won't say no when some lovely young person has done it for me.

    So here we are, zero graffiti, amazing play of light and rust and shadows - in the middle you see the old sluice gate mechanism, used to regulate water flows between some of the local drainage systems and the nearby river.

    I don't know anything of the history of the place - it's not huge by anyone's standards - but as a photographic subject it was pretty awesome.
