Black Rock City is now under construction. Represented by a normal stake painted yellow, the Golden Spike marks the absolute center of the city. From that point, all the streets can be mapped, signs posted, lampposts raised, and structures built.

If you click on the link through facebook it takes you to John Curley’s staff blog on the Burning Man Website where he receives full credit: http://blog.burningman.com/2012/07/building-brc/the-golden-spike/
thanks, I’ve updated the story to use the link you suggested, and attributed the photo to Mr Curley
my source is the Internet. You will notice that this photo was also posted (also uncredited) on the official Burning Man Facebook group. I have no information that the photos are restricted and the copyright holder seeks to prevent them being available for public commentary. If the photographer wants to put his hand up and confirm that they’re his then I would be happy to credit him.
Those photos look like they are the ones John Curley took. If you didn’t take them, please consider citing your source.
