Golden Gate Bridge South Tower

Golden Gate Bridge South Tower
(for those of you who are interested in seeing my San Francisco trip images, I have uploaded 9 pictures in this batch [6 yesterday, 7 the day before yesterday, 11, 10 and 11 before that]. Thanks everyone for your comments and your visits to my photostream! I hope you enjoy the show!)

The Golden Gate Bridge is the landmark I identify most strongly with San Francisco and it is considered a modern Wonder of the World. I have crossed it thousands of times in my lifetime--by car, bike, and by foot--and its beauty has never deminished in my eyes since understanding what it was as a small child. I am proud to say that my father's father actually worked on the construction of this bridge! My brilliant mother designed a quilted block which won a placement in a very special GGB 50th Anniversary Quilt presented to and exhibited by the Golden Gate Bridge District Office. This incredibly beautiful, amazing bridge is part of who I am as a hometown San Franciscan, and I love it dearly.

Many of you might feel a little sad for me that it was a foggy day for these pictures, but I was delighted because this is how the bridge looks most days of the year! I hoped it would be foggy so that I could take pictures of the bridge how I love it most...disappearing into the mist!
