A—Z Photo Challenge: XXX

Yeah, not THAT kind of XXX photo…

I think a valid argument could be made that the letter X is the most useful one in the alphabet. This array of Xs is part of the Golden Gate Bridge’s engineered arch over Fort Point.

Cross bracing and lattice beams of the Golden Gate Bridge form a series of X-shapes in the Engineered Arch over Ft. Point.

Thanks to the Letter X

    Wow! Great eyes, seeing things that most people wouldn’t even pay attention to. Thanks for liking my post Nostalgia. I’ll try to see how many letters I can find in the photo. 🙂

    Excellent. You’ve got the touch for finding things in your photos. Art is in the eye, not the hand, and you’ve definitely got an eye for a striking composition.

      Hi, Cathleen. Thanks for taking the time to comment.

      Geometrical shapes and graphic designs jump out at me everywhere I go. Photography gives me a way to share my views. I am glad that you like my photos.

    Fabulous photo! Were you on a ship when you took this, or climbing on the bridge! Which is more useful, X, T, or an nice inverted U? Great take on the challenge 😉

          “Minimalist” comes to mind. It’s all about using the least amount of material to do the most work (support).
