@Fil Albuquerque,
It's more interesting to hear personal observations of popular places visited.
There are plenty of non-personal photos of world famous sites.
The Golden Gate Bridge is one of the world's most famous sites. It's almost 9000 feet long and 90 feet wide, and was built during the 1930s. The span between the towers made it the longest at the time. It was an engineering feat because when they placed the middle section in place, they had to consider the expansion and shrinkage of it.
There was also information on how much the bridge can swing in high winds.

@cicerone imposter,
My "hundred year old" aunt's brother (by marriage) was part of building the bridge. So it's mildly personal to our family.

@ossobucotemp,
I have never been to San Francisco, but to Berkely and went over the Oakland Bridge.
Could I have seen the Golden Gate Bridge?
My (not so good driver) brother in law took me to the airport. He missed the correct lane - (was it six lanes or five) so he just started to reverse on the motorway to get to point for the correct lane.

@saab,
I don't think so, saab, at least in my own memory of the bridges' positions on the bay.

So, you have to go back for another visit!

@ossobucotemp,
Even if it had been nice to see an almost relative of yours in form of the Golden Gate Bridge I think I stay where I am. It is a long flight.

@saab,
Smiles.. I can't at this point remember his name (he lived before my time). It's quite a bridge, but sometimes it can get a little hairy in a big rainstorm or big lines to go through the gates. Enjoy it then from afar, in beautiful online photos. Saying this reminds me of some other bridge photos we've had over the years at a2k..

@Fil Albuquerque,
Yeah, you're right. No-one should discriminate against inanimate objects.

You do realise you've just dismissed the idea of personal taste? And how threads evolve on A2K?

For you (and me):

The northern lights combine with a sunset in the Lofoten Islands of Norway.

I’ve always loved being outdoors but now when I go out I’m always looking for the beauty whether it’s in the grand vista or the details. My outlook becomes more positive and my love of nature has become greater. Even better, the pictures mean I can share this wonder with others.

@saab,
You would have been able to see the bridge from Berkeley on a clear day.

@Region Philbis,
We used to see this kind of night sky in Africa. The last time was on a safari in South Africa, but that was many years ago. I was stationed in Morocco in the late 1950s with the USAF about 40 miles north of Marrakech called Ben Guerir AFB. It's really nice to be able to see the clear sky with all the stars and some planets. I believe it's now a French base.
