Photo of the Day (9/7/07)

This almost looks like some scene from a cool computer game in which players must battle dragons and avoid thugs pouring oil on their heads as they attempt to storm the castle.

But it's not.

These sturdy walls actually surround Old Town in Warsaw, Poland. They aren't original, however. Like so much of Warsaw, the original walls were destroyed in World War II. These finely reconstructed replicas stand as reminder of the past, a past nicely captured in a thrilling, doom-is-on-way, death-to-heathens dramatic shot by photographer Aawil.

Great job! Now hand me the boiling oil!
