I hope they do :-)
You dealt with some pretty tight restraints well! And made a good point.
Malls are good for walking, Hank. and those lighted ones make it possible at night. In Texas our malls are enclosed and air conditioned to make walking (and shopping) possible in our heat...
Such a shame but, such are the times of well disguised insanity by so many now too.
Good one, Hank. Our previous home was in a city with a high crime rate. Not much crime here, although I did read a police report about a stolen flower pot!
yeah sad but trueAnd this day in age not a whole lot one can do
agree completely....safety is def a high priority and the light at least makes them be more obvious if they are going to do dastardly deeds...
Sad but true, Hank. I must admit (and this is the pastor's wife speaking) I think all the trappings of commercial Christmas appeal to the adrenalin rush people need. It's fed through buying... and followed by depression when the credit cards come in! Great take on a hard challenge, man.

An interesting take. I didnt stop to realize the pretty lights serve another purpose. Good one, Hank.
Strong and cutting. They better get it!
Kind of awful too! But pretty pic! k.
sad but true...
We light in celebration with the purpose of keeping evil from striking in darkness....powerful piece in such few words.
I love the light. (｡◕‿◕｡)
That's a great idea! Keep up those Christmas lights all year round as a deterrent to crime!
Hopefully it does ~ Happy day Hank ~
these are surely perilous times...no place is safe really.
Are all those malls a symptom or a cause of the crime? So many 'marks' available to be robbed, so much envy of all those glittering goods. We don't have them here, thank goodness. In UK cities "shopping" has become an accepted weekend hobby. Not in our low crime, rural economy... yet.
What a great take on the prompt photo, Hank. I would never have thought of it as security lighting. Good work!K
Entertaining piece. Sad but true tale...
