Lime Point Lighthouse

ggb lighthouse_SnapseedThis is what remains of the Lime Point Lighthouse on the east side of the northern end of the Golden Gate Bridge. I took this photo with my iPhone 4 and made edits in Snapseed.

    I started following your blog because my 20 y/o son is an electrician apprentice and my dad worked for Potomac Electric Power Company for 30+ years. But I am loving your photography. It’s so different from mine but in a way that I find fascinatingly beautiful.

      Thanks for the kind words. Happy holidays to you & your family. Say hi to the wiremen for me.

    Was there ever a cannery in that building? – it resembles one in the way it is laid out. Funny how we always think of lighthouses being tall and cylindrical… Your colour photo has a very western feel (minus the bridge, of course).

      There was no cannery at the building, just a 20,000 gallon water tank and coal storage bins (later fuel oil tanks). The building was originally housed a ‘fog signal’ and in 1900 a light was added to the side of the building at a height of 19 feet above the water.

      I am glad that you like the feel of the photo. I am still working at finding my ‘style’ in this photo-editing process.
