Pictures for Pam, Day 56: HFF: Golden Gate Bridge

Pictures for Pam, Day 56: HFF: Golden Gate Bridge
(+2 insets: one of them is Pam's picture!)

So it's almost 8pm here and we got home about 30 minutes ago. Steve and I drove back to Oregon after a six day visit to see my younger brother and his wife and family just across the Bridge from San Francisco. We had such a fantastic time! In the end we didn't do a lot of stuff but it was exactly the right pace for us. We relaxed, made some delicious food, did some hiking, spent a lot of time with family and had a super time. I also had a terrific time wandering around their property taking pictures inside and out. Couldn't have asked for a better getaway!

Today's picture is for Happy Fence Friday, and what better than to use another image of the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge? This photo was taken during our motorcycle trip a couple of years ago. However, I didn't take it from the back of motorcycle. We parked and took a bunch of shots before heading into the City. I think it's pretty hard to take a bad picture of this lovely bridge! :)

By the way, the other day I posted an abstract view of the Bridge as we were crossing it and I totally forgot to mention something super cool! I would like you to take a look at the two inset images. You will see my picture and you will also see another one. The other is so similar that you might think that I took it too. NO! Pam took that one! Without seeing each other's pictures, we both took two that are totally close in appearance! I find it amazing because that view is unique. And yet, we have the same idea in an inspired image! I just love that.

Pam, it was such fun to look at your San Francisco pictures. I hope that you will be able to post more from your visit because I'm sure you have piles of winning shots that we will all love. I really loved seeing the similarity of our GGB photography too, you are so totally my Pod Sister! Thinking of you every day my dear!

That is so awesome, Pam. I love the GGB sooooo much. I have walked across and back again several times. Such an amazing bridge. My dad's father worked on that bridge, in fact!

Great series! Congrats!
I've been here for about three or four times and I've seen this "mother of all bridges" in different moods. Also in a foggy mood.
By the way, did you know that a Swiss was instrumental in building the Golden Gate Bridge? It was the Swiss ingeneer Othmar Ammann. Ammann's influence as a consultant engineer in the Board of Consultants can be worked out through the minutes of meetings and correspondence. The extent to which Ammann was also involved in the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge is controversial. But it is probably due to its influence that the Golden Gate Bridge was finally built as a pure suspension bridge - a design that still captivates today with its elegance.
... and all the best for 2019!

The GGB is indeed very photogenic and the low cloud here adds an interesting dimension. A remarkable similarity between the images you, Pam and Sylvain have taken. HFF and have a great weekend, Janet.

Besonders interessant finde ich die beiden PiPs (insets). Aus den Bildern zu schließen hast du den gleichen Blick wie Pam, d.h. ihr könntet Zwillinge sein.

Yes it seems that you stood one side of the upright and Pam stood on the other side. Amazing coincidence. It's a great photo. There was quite a heavy fog there too.

Lovely shot, Janet, with the mist and partial photo of the bridge. My brother had an interesting experience there trying to take photos of the bridge. An Indian girl tried to provoke a confrontation by standing in front of his camera and even bumping it. When he just moved and said nothing she finally called the cops on him, only someone else had videoed the whole encounter.

Our family members are still not all gone. Fed thirteen this morning and will be feeding 21 this evening. One daughter, a doctor in Belfast, left this morning and the rest leave tomorrow, but we are exhausted and ready to get back to normal, though it's been fun, too.

As to false morels, we once picked a bunch but realized before even getting them home that they were not what we thought and threw them out. They're actually quite easy to tell apart, but you still have to know what you're doing.
