Photo Of The Week… Golden Gate

san francisco golden gate bridge

A friend of mine does these jumping style photos when she travels in front of many famous places. She took an awesome one on the Great Wall of China with no one else in the shot! Rare…

Anyway, we visited the Golden Gate Bridge (we actually drove across it too – cool) whilst on our recent trip to San Francisco. We drove to the end of the Crissy Field promenade in the Presidio to a little wharf that juts out right in front of the Golden Gate Bridge. It was extremely windy and the wind was pure ice. So cold. I decided to do a jumping shot in honour of my friend. After 3 goes, nailed it!

Love the results… it’s all about the leg placement! I could get use to taking these… now to just convince The Artist to be my patient photographer each time…

  • This is a great shot. Is there parking nearby? I am planning a group picture for my team and thought this would be a great place to meet up and take the pic. Thanks!

    • Hi Amy,

      Yes there was plenty of parking. We were there on a weekday, not sure how weekends will go. We drove along Marine Drive and parked near the Warming Hut Cafe. According to Google Maps, the wharf I’m on jumping the jump is called Torpedo Wharf. Good luck with the photo idea!
