A low concrete courtyard wall with fuel (dung turves) stacked on top, a gate to the courtyard from reused wood, sagging, like most gates from reused wood seem to do in Karakul.

All in all a very ordinary scene in Karakul, yet it made me smile: not only do the colors of the turves and the wooden gate echo each other in the midst of all the white of the whitewashed walls, but the diagonals of the leaning turves and the diagonals of the sagging gate seemed to echo each other as well.
