Something look a little off in this shot? Looks like someone didn’t stow something on the L1 door properly...

Yeah that’s happens quite a bit on the 737. It’s what you get using a 50 year old door design!

Where I work, whoever takes the steps away is required to verify door secured and lever correctly stowed in recess. On 737s occasionally it doesn't stow correctly, even on modern B738s. (Airbus aircraft have a different design).
If missed at that point, then agent carrying out final walk around check should have seen this, and then arranged for steps to be re positioned until crew reset lever from inside. I've never personally seen an aircraft arrive like this. There is no risk of door opening once aircraft pressurized as 737s have a plug type door, however it would create extra drag and wind noise inside during flight. Also there is a risk of damage to lever and opening mechanism.

An NG with eyebrow windows and no plugs, beside the door handle.

That vertical stabilizer or tail looks very large and out of proportion on a 737-600. Good catch on the door latch.

"Also there is a risk of damage to lever and opening mechanism."

I rather doubt that.
