Expect to tank.
My vision of the end of days looks something like this. Just a rush of sheer oblivion racing us down.

So, with this photo, i took it of the beige wall and white fluorescent light on the ceiling above the toilet in the mens room at work using my cell phone.

I was having a rough day and leaned my head back, looked up and saw the way it went from beige to dark shadow to blinding white and thought it looked like a good metaphor for oblivion: biggest chunk is "something" followed by a brief dark period and then an ominous "nothing" on the horizon behind it.

i'm really amazed that this is sitting at 4.5 just before voting ends. i really expected this to be in the 3.5 range given it's very simplistic look, and really the fact it's the wall above the toilet....
so thank you for voting an image well above what i thought it would pull. It's a fun feeling, though mixed... it's not a really good score, but i'm also not generally the artistic-y image type of person so i don't really usually "get" this type of image - i'm happy that some people seem to get what i saw in this. Maybe i'll do some more artsy images for variation.
