"In Rapturous appeal;
Here nature, free since time began,
Yields to the restless moods of man,
Accepts his bonds of steel."
From The Mighty Task Is Done
Joseph B. Strauss 1870-1938
Here’s another Golden Gate Bridge shot. The guy balancing on a fence post is one of the thousands of tourists who come to admire the beautiful span every year. He was posing so his buddy could take a picture.
Joseph Strauss was the chief engineer of the Golden Gate Bridge. The quote is from a poem he wrote about the building of the bridge. This year is the bridge’s 75th anniversary.
