You have a good eye for symmetry and composition. Crank the valves to keep things flowing. Is this a canal lock?
I am sorry but I really don’t know. I can’t even say if it’s defunct or still in use. On the other side of the river is a modern hydroelectric power station. It’s seemed these are small weirs.

I think a spectator … just spectates at something. Without any consequence. For him/herself, for art, for the rest of the world.
