The Decay of The Upper Crust
The sycamores in front of San Francisco's City Hall have received their pruning on one side of the plaza but not the other.
Under the newly poodle cut trees, the San Francisco Art Commission signage for Patrick Dougherty's "The Upper Crust" is decaying badly...
...but the willow sapling sculptures have survived quite beautifully.
The Art Commission has decided to keep the sculptures up until their one-year anniversary in February when they will be destroyed. If you're interested in photography, I highly recommend playing around this site over the next three months.
