On November 12, 1936, the Bay Bridge opened to traffic, making today its 75th birthday. So on my way to the East Bay this evening, we made a brief stop in Treasure Island to get a classic shot of the bridge with San Francisco in the background. A quick frame made with the X100 on a Gorilla Pod, jpeg processed in-camera.

I actually had no idea about all this until I saw today’s newspaper this morning. The front page had a cool shot of the bridge taken the year it opened. Glad I checked, since I was passing over the Bridge today. Hope the sunset is equally beautiful tomorrow!
Well, not really but I thought it was cool title. Took this shot last night on the way home from the East Bay. That’s the wife driving, by the way. This was taken in the tunnel going through Treasure Island that leads to the upper deck of the Bay Bridge’s main span.
I have a second shot taken on the actual main span that looks really cool too. Check it out on my flickr page!

I took this photo this morning, after deciding to roll out of bed at 4:30am to catch the magic hour before dawn here in San Francisco. This is the black and white version of the same photo I’ll be posting on my flickr page. I set up out here at about 6:15am and waited for the sky to start changing color, which happened very suddenly at about 6:35am. I really wanted to stay longer, but I was parked at a metered parking spot that started at 7am. I also had to be at work by 8am, so I was long gone before the sun moved passed the eastern horizon. I really love shooting at dawn. It’s so peaceful and serene in the city before rush hour.
