It’s hard not to gloat a little over the prospect of being paid to do shoots like this. This is fun stuff, no two ways about it.
And I totally lucked out with the weather. Our first attempt last week was completely fogged out, so we hit all of our East Bay waypoints (shooting through some nasty haze) and postponed all of the San Francisco stuff for another day. That day was yesterday, and I nearly cancelled the flight because the weather in Hayward (where the flight originated) was so crappy, and deteriorating. But the Golden Gate was getting the light that photographers dream about!
Sunday, May 27th marks the 75th anniversary of the Grand Opening of the Golden Gate bridge. Here’s a great article with oral history of the building of this incredible piece of engineering and design.
