Another shot from the fancy new outdoor addition to Alderwood Mall.

Let's hope it stays clear of litter.
We had a similar, but much less attractive, water feature in one of our shopping areas and it was removed after vandalism and rubbish made it an eyesore.
I seem to recall 'Godiva' from a previous pic and can't remember if they sell knickers or chocolate. Most likely the latter as Lady Godiva is famous for going commando.

I love the backlighting.
This has me thinking of those episodes of the Classic Star Trek with the oh-so-modern art, generally of an...um...upright nature. This makes me think of that, only without people walking around in those William Ware Theiss costumes with the off the shoulder swoop for the women-folk and odd, moderately-symmetrical turtleneck/overalls ensembles for the men. And that semi-transporter sound effect that all of the alien planets had. Sometimes I wish real life had those kinds of sound effects.
Needless to say, the fountain has something of an otherworldly vibe to it, in just the way that I like. I mean, who needs a fountain full of round-bottom cherubs and dragons spewing water? The sun peeking from behind the tallest part is a brilliant touch, and the smaller fountain bits, with their water-filled...um...fountain parts, are really well captured. I want one of these! Well, maybe a smaller version as I don't have much room. I love this shot. Oh...and there's chocolate!
