commute photo essay - columns

I think I've shot these orange columns a lot. They kinda stand out. But there's a cool dragon graffit on the base. It's kinda shy down there, I mean why didn't the artist go all out and make it a bolder statement?

Contrast with a blue column near the top of the ramp, leading out of the bikeways. I'm not sure what it says. Something about the water park district, welcome (which is not a water park, per se, as much as it's a display or museum of water usage? How big can you yawn?). The crest of the ramp is at the right. It's all downhill from there, so to speak.

Oh, and I don't think this column is holding anything up. It looks like it's supporting the roadway above, but it's not. It's a random, free-standing, welcoming column. Go fig.
