Illustration of the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, CA.
I’ve decided to try a 365 project in order to practice my vector illustration skills. Everyday, I will illustrate a famous (or not-so-famous) landmark. The Golden Gate Bridge seems an appropriate enough place to start, seeing as the bay area has been my home for so long. Hopefully I can keep up with the project! Illustrating everyday sounds really ambitious, but I’m going to try my best.

Went to Portland a couple of weeks ago. One of the more interesting things I saw was the McLaughlin Bridge in Milwaukie. On each corner of the bridge was little skyscraper: http://goo.gl/maps/8sMr6 I guess what made it interesting is that it didn’t come up in Flickr or Google image search.
From Google Street View:
That’s interesting. I can’t find any pictures or details on this either. Anyone in Portland* who could get one for us? Or someone who knows another source for an image?
A Tumblr user has sent in a link to a page with more information on the bridge, officially the John McLoughlin Memorial Bridge. It was built in 1933, so these Deco elements on the ends make sense.
* Yes, Portland. I thought Milwaukee, WI, too, but then on street view it said Milwaukie, OR.
Gorgeous night shot.

My family lives in the SF Bay Area. Whenever I make the trip to the coast to see them, I try to visit the Golden Gate Bridge. Usually it’s just to stare and wonder what I could possibly do with my camera that would be different from the multitude of other photos that have been made of this Iconic bridge.

P.S. Let the festival of reblogging continue. After a week without updating the blog, I’m going to try to make up for it with a share-fest.
Once again the Deco bridge — and look in the distance, it’s City Hall.
The columns of the Sixth Street bridge frame City Hall, 1950.
Deco bridge ends. I know there’s a term of them but I forget :)
