In the Steps of Millions

On Thursday we did a spur of the moment trip to San Francisco. Both Annika and Jay were home and it was a beautiful day. We were deciding what to do and Jay suggested going to the city. We all agreed and surprisingly managed to leave within an hour. I grabbed my camera and one lens to keep my gear simple. It was a beautiful California day with puffy white clouds in the sky and the hills have already turned a golden brown. We drove south down highway 101. We stopped for coffee in Cloverdale and a had burgers in Petaluma. Just before the Golden Gate Bridge we pulled off and drove up to the overlook of the bridge in the Marin Headlands. It was fun to play tourist. There were people all over with cell phones, selfie sticks and cameras all taking pictures of the bridge and we joined them. It's hard to fathom how many millions perhaps billions of images have been made of this iconic bridge. We have a few images that my Grandfather took during its construction. We ended up staying there for over an hour before we headed into the city. Here are some images of the bridge. My favorite image is the last one of the container ship heading into the bay under the bridge. God's blessings upon your weekend, chris All images creted with a handheld Canon 7D and a Canon EFS 17-85mm lens
