Looking Down From the Battlements


I may not have even taken this photo! That's what the scandal here is.

But, in all honesty, I've taken a lot of photos just like it. When you stand on the old battlements of a European castle and look down, you see a sight no one could have planned--the sight of modernity and progress, and how we don't need those castle walls anymore. To have had to live outside of those walls a thousand years ago--that's what truly must have been fearful.
