Photoblogging: What Up with the Navy Memorial Fountain?

Click for bigger!

Seriously, the big fountain at the Navy Memorial is now filled with blue water as you can see in the above photo I shot just this morning. Is it intentional? A prank? One thing is for sure, it now resembles the Ty-D-Bol™ Memorial more than anything. Honey, listen, next time you want to get creative with the fountain, use colored lights and Liberace, OK?

WTF, ew:

Click for bigger, grosser.

Conjecture: is it cleaning fluid to flush-out the fountain? Is it, in fact, the Ty-D-Bol™ Memorial? UPDATE: Yes it is! See here for the update.

Sadly, some people add blue dye to their fountains because they think it looks "fresher"". My impression has always been that the farther west you are the more you are likely to see blue fountains.

You are right on the money with your Ty-D-Bol™ analogy, I mean why blue? Why not pink? Why not yello- never mind.

Blue-dyed water is like blue-dyed carnations. It looks cheesy and unnatural.
Good catch, Miss Pony.

Looks like the water features at the mini-Las Vegas style miniature golf courses we saw along the strip into Myrtle Beach, SC.
Pink water? That would be screaming to the world, rather than not telling!
