at the gates

I don't exactly know what was so safely guarded behind these gates; but frankly, I don't care. Something about partially oxidized iron gates takes me back to being in Europe, and is always a joy to unexpectedly see when walking around DC. This was also my first time taking out the new MK Hamilton luggage tote for a spin; it was a Valentine's day present from the hubs! Hope you all had a love-filled Valentine's day!
