Weekly Photo Challenge: Selfie

The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge this week is to take a “selfie”—the photographic equivalent of an autobiography, in my opinion. I don’t take selfies, as a rule, but I took this photo one night on the roof of the South Anchorage of the Golden Gate Bridge while on a Light Check.
