The Bridge



It only takes a few short minutes to cross the Golden Gate Bridge, yet so many things happen during that time. Jimmy and I met with old friends in the north bay on Saturday, so we chose a path that took us across the Bridge. It was a beautiful and sunny day in San Francisco, and, as usual, the Bridge was bursting with activity. The walkway was littered with people and bikes as everyone soaked up the perfect scenery. There is something to be said for this bridge's rustic charm and beauty. I love the rust colored finish and how the Bridge towers into the sky. Even though I am a native Californian, I am always astounded by the presence this mighty bridge commands. As we drove over, I rolled down the windows, inhaled the crisp bay air, and went on a brief vacation.














The lights danced on the Bridge as we crossed back over and headed home.

  2. I love these pictures! Every time I go to San Fran, I always go the other way, so I have never been on this bridge! I think it's so ridiculous that I haven't. I think it's about time!

  8. I've only been out west once and stayed in San Diego with a day trip to LA. San Fransisco seems like a fabulous place to visit and I'd love to see the Golden Gate Bridge in person. Lovely pictures :)

  10. Marcie, these pictures are gorgeous! I completely agree, the Golden Gate bridge is breathtaking and has such an incredible presence. When I lived in the city, I loved decorating with framed photos of the Golden Gate and other famous bridges. These photos are so pretty, you should blow them up and frame them! It sounds like you had a great weekend.

  22. Well what have we here? GREAT CLICKS MARCIE! Love the lights in motion on the last. Tilt the camera direct opposite of the movement, so like in a car, turn around and shoot backwards in the seat, just as you pass it.....It bounces and then every once in a while, the lights will fade to nonexistent...Does this make sense. Shoots as many frames as possible, you be surprised what you get, don't aim too much, focus on clicking! Okay I'm done sorry!
