Oakland is my home town!  I watched in horrer when a car fell off the edge of the broken pavement of the old bridge after the Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989 and was intrigued when I heard about the construction of a new "Oakland Side" of the Bay Bridge in 2002.  When the new span finally opened on September 2, 2013 I knew I had to photograph it!  I felt like "we" (Oakland) finally had a bridge that was as beautiful as the San Francisco side!  It took a little while before I was able to make my way "home" to take the photograph I wanted to, but I was blessed with a beautiful evening once I did.

 

Just the November before I captured this image, a high school friend of mine was elected as Mayor of Oakland.  I gave her a specially cropped version of this image as a sort of "congratulations on being elected Mayor" gift.

 

It truly is a beautiful bridge for a beautiful city!

    Prints on Aluminum

    MetalPrints™ represent a new art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. Because the image is infused into the surface and not on it, your images will take on an almost magical luminescence. The ultra-hard scratch-resistant surface is waterproof/weatherproof and can be cleaned easily – just avoid direct sunlight.  (Contact us for MetalPrints™ specifically designed to be displayed outside!)

     

    Printed on the highest quality aluminum, they come with Float Mount Hangers and rounded corners.
