Today there were many celebrations for the Golden Gate Bridge’s 75th anniversary of its opening up to the public. While I was not able to attend the celebrations, I thought I would post some of the photographs I have taken over the years of this iconic creation.
I’ve noticed that nearly all of the photographs I’ve made of this bridge have been from the northern side, up in the Marin Headlands. There have of course been the occasional forays to Fort Point on the San Francisco side, and even a few shots taken while passing under the bridge on the way to and from fishing… I suppose I am largely a creature of habit however.
No matter where I stand however, this bridge has always impressed me, as it sits there, guarding us, guarding the ocean, acting as a portal to our dreams.

Or you can look at my photo essay of people as they surf by under the bridge
Powerful photos!!! Thanks for sharing Nonoy Manga
I love the different perspectives of the bridge
Great fotos, as always – love the one with the surfers. Wonder if you know photog Richard Misrach’s book “Golden Gate”? He photographed the bridge for 3 years at all times of day, in all weather conditions. It’s beautiful.
