The just-opened grocery store near our house still exudes the new-car patina of a place yet to be discovered by the masses. Little elements of its design make it a slightly less creepy place to be when the sun goes down. For example, the cart garage area in the front of the store is bathed in abnormally intense light, an effect amplified by the day-glow yellow shade of the carts.
I thought the artificial light made the yellow paint look somewhat surreal. And even if I'm wrong, it added a little spice to an otherwise boring trip to pick up milk and OJ.
