Diving into the holiday season. 😄 Reply ↓ Prior... December 9, 2018 • 1:28 pm The lines – intersecting secations – tones – and nooks and crannies – Such a great photo Reply ↓ David December 9, 2018 • 11:52 am Always interesting to see the superstructure of a bridge, particularly one like the GGB. O/T: Finally got around to an Instagram account. I’m at @DR1779R, but may change the name. 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie December 9, 2018 • 1:00 pm Thanks, David. I agree. Welcome to IG!😁 Reply ↓ joshi daniel December 7, 2018 • 9:37 pm Nice use of lines 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie December 7, 2018 • 11:42 pm Thank you, Joshi. A favorite viewpoint. Reply ↓ Golden Gate Girders | The Reluctant Poet December 7, 2018 • 7:17 pm mdhoffmannphoto December 6, 2018 • 6:57 pm Wow! Looks like you’ve covered the entire spectrum of grey tones and patterns and contrasts in this shot! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie December 7, 2018 • 8:32 am Thank you, Michael. So glad you like it. Reply ↓ LisaDay December 6, 2018 • 5:17 pm I do. I always like to look at things you find! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie December 6, 2018 • 5:19 pm Thanks, Lisa! Very much appreciated! Reply ↓ paula graham December 6, 2018 • 1:35 am Brilliant, a steely confusion. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie December 6, 2018 • 10:29 am Hi Paula, Endless light and line combinations. Glad you like this one, thank you – her underbelly is unappreciated. 🙂 Reply ↓ Gunta December 5, 2018 • 7:04 pm Bridges really are such fun to play with. Trying to figure out where you were is also a fun puzzle. 😀 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie December 6, 2018 • 10:27 am Thank you, Gunta. The underbelly is as fascinating as the top. I rappel down the rocks to get these shots….kidding! There’s a walking path here. 🙂 Reply ↓ Gunta December 6, 2018 • 10:34 pm Ha ha! You had me on that one! I’ve done shots of the underbelly of the bridge at Coos Bay, but had to drive around quite a bit to find access. I loved the angle you found. Reply ↓ Linda Wyatt December 5, 2018 • 6:33 pm There goes the monkey again… never know what you are hanging on to….. to catch just the right angles! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie December 6, 2018 • 10:24 am Ha, Linda! It does look like I am suspended…funny. Fortunately, there are wonderful walking paths right along here. Thank you for the smile! Reply ↓ Jane Iwan December 5, 2018 • 5:15 pm Another Monochromia post. Congrats. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie December 6, 2018 • 10:23 am Thanks so much, Jane. It’s an honor to be a part of this group. Reply ↓ Allan G. Smorra December 5, 2018 • 4:10 pm I love the way you accented the volume of space & light under and around the steel girders and beams of the bridge. I have seen—and taken more than my share—of photos of the Golden Gate Bridge and you are consistently in the top 3 of my favorite GGB photographers. This B&W is a keeper. Ω Reply ↓ Jane Lurie December 6, 2018 • 10:22 am Oh, Allan, you have made my day. Coming from your well-trained and affectionate eye for the Golden Gate, that means a lot to me. Happy you like this one– I love that spot and it’s interesting the images that work well in monochrome. Thanks very much! Reply ↓ Allan G. Smorra December 6, 2018 • 3:09 pm That spot was a favorite of mine on Swing shift when I was making my rounds before sunset. Ω Reply ↓ Jane Lurie December 6, 2018 • 3:11 pm What a great memory, Allan. 🤗 Reply ↓ Allan G. Smorra December 6, 2018 • 3:13 pm One of many, Jane. Ω Steve Schwartzman December 5, 2018 • 11:22 am From a documentary on PBS last night we learned that Joseph Strauss, the chief engineer on the Golden Gate Bridge, had once worked at the firm of Ralph Modjeski, who was a main consulting engineer on the Bay Bridge. You’re fortunate to have both bridges to play with photographically. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie December 6, 2018 • 10:19 am Interesting background, Steve. I will see if I can find that on PBS. The two bridges have very different personalities and are exciting to photograph. Thanks so much for your comment. Reply ↓ Steve Schwartzman December 6, 2018 • 11:58 am The name of the documentary is “Bridging Urban America”: http://www.bridginguamericafilm.com/ Reply ↓ Jane Lurie December 6, 2018 • 3:10 pm Thanks so much for the link, Steve. 😀 Reply ↓ Golden Gate Girders — Jane Lurie Photography | O LADO ESCURO DA LUA December 5, 2018 • 10:13 am Love to hear what you think...
