Fountain of Sorrow
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.
