I went to pick up my lunch and walked by this fountain as I have many times.  Installed underneath stairs without any place to stop and contemplate the fountain, people walk quickly by without giving it a second glance.  Once the decision was made to place it, I guess they felt the need to enclose the fountain to  protect it from vandalism.  So there it sits in splendid isolation. 

The net effect is not a little sense of calm and repose, but of sadness.  Good idea, wrong place.

some good ideas should be saved for the right place and time...
