Illustration of the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, CA.
landmark365:

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.

McLaughlin Bridge

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:

To penance66:

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?

UPDATE:
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.
