Photo Challenge: Thursday’s Windows – Week 8

We spent our first night in Boston at The Parker House Hotel back in 2002. Here are two views out of our window, one when we arrived and one the next morning when we awoke for the day.

Two Cents Tuesday Challenge: Pressure

This week we are taking one more closeup look at a crushed bridge beam for the Pressure Challenge. You can click here to get the story on how/why this beam was subjected to such an enormous pressure. Suffice it to say, it was only a test and valuable information was gathered.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

Q: What does an acorn say when it grows up?
A: Gee, I’m a tree (geometry).

This week’s photo challenge is to take a photo of the “shapes and rhythms” that make up the geometry of our world. Well, Kiddies, I work at Ground Zero for Geometry. The Golden Gate Bridge is nothing but angles, slopes, curves and triangles and since geometry was my favorite subject in school, I am in Hog Heaven every day at work.

Below is a photo that I took at night with my iPhone4 and then edited in Snapseed.

Two Cents Tuesday Challenge: Temptation

As a bridge electrician I had to learn to resist the temptation to step back and take a look at my work. In this photo I am standing on the Upper Chord, outside of the bridge, looking down at Ft. Point.

Bridge workers’ mantra: “Don’t step back to admire your work.”
