In case you have not already read about it Andy Goldsworthy's got a major commission in Ess Eff and it's a spire.
Ken Baker wrote about it in the Chronicle. (Sorry, but his piece sorta sucked...but its got some interesting details.)
Today could not have been a prettier day to take the spire in, with the smog as thick as cream. The best view's gotten by pulling over at Inspiration Point, turning off Arguello in the Presidio. (Those are pretty words to type.)
