A Photo A Day For 6 Months: Day 17~ The Golden Gate Bridge Celebration

"One day if I do go to heaven... I'll look around and say, 'It ain't bad, but it ain't San Francisco. "

~Herb Caen

It's more than just Memorial Day weekend here in the Bay Area, it's the 75th Anniversary of the our dearest symbol of home, the Golden Gate Bridge. I have decided to delve into my archives this weekend, to share with you all the different photographs I have taken of the Golden Gate over the last few years. The Golden Gate Bridge takes my breath away, every time I see it. I have been inspired to photograph the bridge many, many times but, somehow each time I see it, I always feel like it's for the very first time.

If it is possible to be truly in love with a bridge, I know that I am completely, hopelessly, in love with the Golden Gate Bridge.The photos all have a story that goes with them, some special inspiration to photograph the bridge in particular. And as I looked through the archived collection I thought of all the picnic dates Alan and I have had at the bridge, I remembered old friends,  and lost friends, and how through it all the Golden Gate was always there to make me smile, or soothe my heartache. It's a special place, I will love forever.

Anyway... enough words... here are today's photos...

Be sure to comeback tomorrow to see the rest of my Golden Gate Bridge photo series!

Now... go see what Kat and JR have posted for today's A Photo A Day series!

Fantastic images of the bridge Carly. It is a location that should be on everyone's bucket's just THAT beautiful. How fortunate you are to have it practically in your neighborhood. I always have, and always will enjoy seeing your pictures of this iconic landmark. Maybe one day, I'll get out there and you'll take me on a little tour of your favorite bridge photography spots.

Happy Anniversary Golden Gate Bridge. You're awesome!
You have some nice shots. I like the different points of view a lot. I think the one with the gull is my favorite. I like birds.

Here's my link:

Have an awesome weekend!
