Here are a couple of shots taken yesterday with Nikki. I'm still focused on the early part of the day beneath the fog. The first two are from Baker Beach and the last is from the road leading to the Palace of the Legion of Honor.





Beautiful series of the Golden Gate Bridge Curtis, this one and the previous ones.

I was surprised to learn that portions of the bridge over land ride on rubber cushions tended to isolate the bridge from earthquake jolts.



Here is a link to some facts about the bridge.

For instance, the weight of the cables and suspender cables is 24,500 TONS...


Thank you for the design detail pictures. As the rubber isolators technology was born in the lates '60, I think the GGB isolators have been placed after the bridge construction, it means they are looking after the bridge.


28-45mm f/4.5 @ 28mm and f/11, I really like this zoom.
