original story, where I expressed (personal--but then, nu?) doubts about the attractiveness of the structures.
The structures are still an issue, the wood is so ...raw; reminding me of a hippie cabin in Crested Butte circa 1972, when goats and chickens ran amok in the streets...and there was a heated debate over installing a traffic signal at THE intersection...
The totem still has something of that feel -- the wood too exposed and the structure too chunky for grace.
The sad truth is you're only accessing a traffic circle. It's in front of the Capitol so if you look up the view is... not the usual kind of thing one comes across. But if you look straight ahead, it's a bunch of cars.
