Red Wheels

I was on the West Coast when I came across these two red wheels up against the fence line. I love the circular wheels being so red and bright. I like the leaves on the ground as it was a good fall day and I love the way the angles work.

This is a photo shot of the Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA. It is just incredible to think this has been here for millions of years. It is spectacular to visit and see.

Chicago Skyline

This is a photograph I took of the view of the Chicago Skyline from the south shore. In the middle of the picture you see “the tallest building in the city and it is the 108-story Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower), which rises 1,451 feet (442 m) in the Chicago Loop and was completed in 1974.”

Golden Gate Bridge 3

I took this photo as a comparison between a huge ocean liner carrier and the minimum height of the Golden Gate Bridge.  It is so high up that it seems like you could put to ocean liner ships one on top of the other.  You can also see some of the roughness of the water in the bay and you can imagine how much rougher it would be in the Pacific Ocean.  I also learned that Joseph Strauss was the main engineer and actually had to face opposition to the project in the first place.  Strauss had already designed and constructed over 400 drawbridges, mainly inland.

Golden Gate Bridge 2

This photo shows most of the expanse of the Golden Gate Bridge.  What is interesting to note is that the construction on the bridge started in 1933 and that it was finished ahead of schedule and under budget.  This should serve as a signal to today’s society where projects normally go over budget and are not finished on the speculated or planned time.  That is my political comment for the modern world.  This bridge is one of the most photographer bridges in the world and is considered one of the most beautiful.

This photo is a different view of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California.  The towers are visible but not the entire bridge.  Apparently, there is usually a lot of fog covering the bridge and it remains visible for very few days of the year.  We were lucky as the fog was lifting.  At one point in time, until 1964, it was the longest suspension bridge spanning San Francisco to Marin County at 4200 feet (1280 meters).  It was voted one of the Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers.

Sausalito Shoreline

I think one of the coolest things about Sausalito, California is that it is only 13 feet above sea level.  Can’t do much better than that.  The population of this quaint little city with colourful buildings is only about 7000 people and is located at the northern end of the Golden Gate Bridge.  I found the restaurants in the area to be spectacular with great seafood, of course.
