Sunlight and Clouds and Shit

Saw this view at the mall today. It's hard to capture those sun rays that poke through a hole the clouds. I pretty much whiffed on this one but it's close.

On an unrelated note, the sound system at the food court at the Southpark Mall is still down. It's been down since around the new year. It is so nice not to have shitty music blaring through the food court. Now I hear foot steps and people talking. I am wondering what the deal is. Before the TV screens there played some piped in broadcast that featured music videos by average pop bands and interviews with minor celebrities and the occasional funny pet video. Now there is nothing but blank, silent screens. My bet is the company that created the content went tits up and the mall is searching for a new company to provide them with innocuous content. I say, take down those TV and leave the room as it is. Not every public space needs a soundtrack. That's not going to happen but a guy can dream, can't he?
