Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco Bay, California, USA
The Golden Gate Bridge, one of San Francisco's most famous Landmarks. Its a gorgeous deco design piece and is probably one of the most photographed bridges in the world. Photographers such as myself never bore with photographing it because the San Francisco Bay provides an ever changing backdrop.
The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate, the opening of the San Francisco Bay onto the Pacific Ocean. As part of both US Highway 101 and California Route 1, it connects the city of San Francisco on the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula to Marin County.
The Golden Gate Bridge had the longest suspension bridge span in the world when it was completed in 1937 and has become an internationally recognized symbol of San Francisco and California. Since its completion, the span length has been surpassed by eight other bridges. It still has the second longest suspension bridge main span in the United States, after the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in New York City. In 2007, it was ranked fifth on the List of America's Favorite Architecture by the American Institute of Architects.
