Golden Gate Bridge in Black and White

I’m taking advantage of some downtime leading up to Thanksgiving to dig through the photos from the past year.  Inevitably toward the end of every year I do this, finding some hidden gems in the rough or remembering some gems that got lost in hustle of the year…like this set of black and white abstracts of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Admittedly I usually don’t see in black and white.  But this particular day while walking around beneath the north side of of the bridge, the way the late afternoon sun was hitting the girders beneath the road deck just cried out to me in black and white. The light with the repeating patterns of girders sucked me in for a good hour…much to the confusion of all the tourists wondering what I could have been taking photos of.

Some times, when you keep an open mind while editing photos, alternative views jump out at you.  This pano of the bridge girders is an example of that.  The full photo didn’t speak to me, but I felt something there and after working with the photo for a while, this pano found it’s way out.
