Sunday Post: Bridge

My entry in Jake’s challenge this week is a bit less obvious than you might expect for someone who works on a bridge. I am working a Day shift now and enjoying the sunshine, and the shadows.

This is looking South—down the backspan of the West Main Cable—over the shoulder of my partner one day last week. The shadow of the Fort Point Arch, and the fort itself, are accented in the early morning light.

Weekly Photo Challenge: The World Through Your Eyes

“Share a picture of the world through your eyes.”
—The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge

This is the view I had a few days ago at work when my co-worker and I were in the basket of a JLG lift working on a light pole. You might say that we are mere shadows of our former selves….

The Power of the Spoken Word

“Baby,” I’ll tell her, “remember, your momma is a worrier, and your poppa is a warrior, and you are the girl with small hands and big eyes who never stops asking for more.” —Sarah Kay Experience the power of the spoken word by a young lady who is wise beyond her years.

Phoneography Challenge: Macro Mobile Photography

Here is a disclaimer to start this challenge:
My entry this week is not a macro photograph, it is a macro fauxtograph. I am splitting hairs between macro and close-up photography.

My perspective was altered last week when my boss and I went into the South Anchorage of the Golden Gate Bridge. Imagine a room the size of a football field, 50 – 60 feet high, and filled with concrete posts, beams and cables. Security concerns prevent me from posting photos of the interior of the structure so you will have to take my word for it, it is impressive!

OK, back to my visit, we were there to replace a burned out lamp in a wall-mounted light fixture when I paused to look at a bolt that was protruding head-high from the wall. It was so large that it looked like a macro photo of a much smaller bolt. You can see the difference in the second photo where I put a hard hat in the frame to give a sense of perspective.

I hope that Sally doesn’t mind my deviation from the norm in this week’s challenge.
