i’ve never been a big fan of pools, but with the increasing awareness of water scarcity, i have come to view them very unfavorably. i look at most of these pool photos and ask myself: what’s the point of this? most of these pools seem like little more than testaments to excess and waste. the “pool by the sea” in cancun is absolutely crazy.
