Forest Gate RX1
This is a defensive 'gate' from a 19th Century British fort in Singapore. I like the heavy vegetation that frames it. The fort was planned as such "…On the hill overlooking the Settlement, and commanding it and a considerable portion of the anchorage, a small Fort, capable of mounting 8 or 10 pounders and of containing a magazine off brick or stone, together with a barrack for the permanent residence of 30 European artillery, and of temporary accommodation of the rest of the garrison in case of emergency." [Raffles, 1819]. Nothing much left of it now...
