Re: Yours Truly

You’re looking good, Jack, perhaps a bit chilled. I know it’s chilly here in the northeast. Nasty Spring so far. But it will get better, right. Great bridge!

Re: Yours Truly

Nice to see a face to a name Jack, and that Bridge, been under it, but never over it, I never got a photo of it. an unbelievable omission, had a quick look through a box of old photos and found one of Alcatraz and a pilot boat taken through a porthole, only had an Agfa 120 folding camera in those days.

Re: Yours Truly

Excellent portraiture work, Jack.. you are looking smart, love the smirk on your face .. a question - are you always wearing matching jacket (in color) also when your pictures would be taken in front of another bridge?(no pun intended, kidding only!) .. Thank you for sharing ..

Kind regards,

Re: Yours Truly

Too bad about not getting the picture John. It's proba boy one of the most photographed icons in the world.

Re: Yours Truly

You are probably the most observant member of this forum Bruno. Yes, I would never go to see a bridge without outfitting myself with matching clothing. LOL.

Re: Yours Truly

Hi Jack. Looks like you're having a great time. Is that Angel Island or Treasure Island?

Re: Yours Truly

Jack,

Did you use a tripod and the self timer or did someone else take the photo?  I love the background.

Re: Yours Truly

Thanks Daniel. I have no idea which island that is. I was a total tourist while I was there.

Re: Yours Truly

Oddly enough Howard that was handheld and taken in a hurry while the driver of the car waited right next to flowing traffic for me. I was amazed at the quality of that one. I had a 12X24 print made to give to the relative I was staying with and it is acceptable from about 8 feet viewing distance.

Re: Yours Truly

Sorry Howard I was referring to a different photo on that reply. The answer to your question is it was taken by a companion.

Re: Yours Truly

You're looking great, Jack! Very handsome portrait! The weather seems nice without the typical Fog around the Bridge - but does look quite windy there!

I think you took this picture outside the bay near China Beach Park or by the Lands End Trail. And that must be Angel Island you see behind you and the bridge. That area is so exposed and always windy but you chose a nice sunny day for your visit.
