I have walked many times to the Golden Gate Bridge and I have noticed that under just the right conditions, you can see people walking toward you that look like zombies, because they are kicking up dust, and a few days ago, I was able to capture this effect, as seen below.
Today, I was getting some sun, while admiring the beauty of the Palace Of Fine Arts, and when I looked up, I noticed I was not the only one. I thought the fact the Seagull was chillin' on top of the street light was kind of profoundly ironic for several reasons. First of all, due to the fact he was parked on top of the street light, and it said NO PARKING and 2 HOUR PARKING on the lighting post. Secondly, the fact the Seagulls facing the same direction as the eagle on the back of the USPS truck. Also the crosswalk looks kind of like the Beatles Abbey Road.
This is a fascinating Honda Civic Ad from 1974 and it was taken in front of the Palace Of Fine Arts in the San Francisco Marina. It is amazing how timeless the Palace Of Fine Arts is, but the design of the Honda and clothes did not fare so well.
I took some photos today of the America's Cup final race, and I thought I would share them with you. This first image was so fascinating in so many ways that I cropped it four times, as you can see below.
First Photos Of Driving Over The Bay Bridge Expansion
12:30AM Tuesday, September 3, 2013
My father Jake Ehrlich Jr, and his sister Dora Jane Ehrlich walked over the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge the first day it was open back on November 12, 1936, as well as on the Golden Gate Bridge the first day it was open to the public on May 27, 1937.
So when my girlfriend mentioned to me tonight, just before midnight on Monday, September 2, 2013, that the San Francisco Bay Bridge Expansion had finally opened, I got in my car to go and check it out. It cost $6.4 Billion for 2.2 miles of absolute beauty and splendor. Unlike the older bridge it replaces, it has all ten lanes on the top, so drivers traveling in both directions get to enjoy the beautiful views!!!
