Story Challenge: Letter “X”

This week’s challenge had me puzzled for a while until a few days ago when I was walking below the Golden Gate Bridge and found an ‘X’ staked down on the side of the road. I felt like I was in a cartoon, that perhaps if I stepped on the ‘X’ an anvil would magically fall from the sky and land directly on my head.

I did what any budding photographer would do: I took a photo and saved it for Frizz’ Story Challenge: Letter “X”. Enjoy.

Travel theme: Circles

“Like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel… dah, dah, dah — dee, dee, dee, and whatever else you want to put in there…”

This week’s Travel theme is circles and I have a photo of a large metal ring that was used to guide a cable when the 12-inch barrel of an artillery piece was put in place. There are more rings like this in Battery Lancaster, built in 1900, on what is now the East side of the Golden Gate Bridge Plaza. It is worth a look if you are ever in the area. Enjoy.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Lines

Cee’s challenge this week is to show a photograph of lines: Horizontal, Vertical, or Diagonal. What could I do? Where could I go? What should I photograph?

I know, how about a bridge?

Here’s Looking Up at You, Kid

I am most impressed by the Golden Gate Bridge when I am looking up at it from below.
