Whats up with the lousy image on JOS?

What exactly is that picture of on the main page?

I see an assortment of cars, possibly some buildings but I can't tell, some fuzzy mountains in the background. And what's that thing on the far left side of the image? A tree?

It's not an interesting composition in the least (Typical half-sky, half-earth landscape photo: boring) Could the lighting have been any less appealing? Dull, muted tones on a scattered, confusing landscape.

I've seen Joel take some decent pics, but this sure as heck ain't one of them. Why put it on the front of the site?

The picture is indicative of Joel's current state of mind.

Perhaps it is the view out the window of the mental health institution that Joel has checked into.

If so, I would find that particularly ironic:

It ain't all that bad, I tell you. I discover many of the pictures I take turn out to be like that. May be he was trying to capture a subtle element that did not come accross that well.
