The final days of the bay bridge in San Francisco, CA before the transition to the new one. The S-Curve
Yeah, I miss the old one because that is a historic bridge and in its own way, beautiful with the massive size of the trusses. It could have been saved. Saddens me to see it with no lights on at night with only the little red lights blinking on the top. Could they have saved it for anything or at least preserve a truss in park somewhere? I hate to see it go. It's like erasing a part of a landmark.
preserving a truss is an interesting idea... i'm sure there are some plans on memorializing it somewhere. That being said, they are removing it due to safety concerns... which is understandable. Still hate to see it go though
I was just in SF, but did not get to see the new span open. It looks great. . .
You shot is simply wonderful! Where were you taking this shot from? Yuerba Buena Island?
