ABC Wednesday: G is for Golden Gate Bridge

In early August, Grace and I were traveling back from the US to Taiwan, but separately. Both of us passed through San Francisco. She arrived in the city earlier than me. The weather was as usual California weather, beautiful clear sky.

She went on for a photographic tour of the city and took these postcard perfect pictures of Golden Gate Bridge.

Here is an unusual view of the bridge that we do not usually see. There was a helicopter turning around under the bridge.

This is a beautiful shot, great angle and composition. We have been here a few times. Thanks for visiting my blog. I have not posted anything this week because of the brush fires here in SoCal. There was fire in the North in the Auburn area. I hope the heat cools down too.
My main blog is here.

A great choice - and very welcome with me since I once lost a roll of film containing just pictures of the Golden gate...

PS I think they might be kittiwakes.

A helicopter flying under the bridge? That's scary! But the photos are stunning and impressive!
Thanks for showing and your visit!

San Francisco is my favorite US city, and that bridge is one reason why. The last picture in particular is quite impressive.

Great shots of the Golden Gate! I saw a program about it some months ago. They talked about how to maintain the bridge, and it was very interesting!

Regarding the spam at my blog: It has stopped no, after I activated the word verification!

The bridge is quite striking against the blue of the sky. Nice idea for G

Hey, I've walked across that bridge before! San Francisco may be my favorite city in the U.S.
