Look How it Shines for You

IMG_7593

The biggest news in San Francisco as of lately has been the lighting ceremony that took place on Tuesday night on the Bay Bridge.  This holds a special place in my heart because this is the bridge I drive across all the time and I think it’s extremely beautiful.  They have been testing the lights all week and in the beautiful weather we have had, the bridge was nothing less than magnificent.  It’s currently the world’s largest LED structure with 25,000 LED lights individually programmed by Leo Villareal.  For two years these beautiful, luminous lights will shine for you.  Don’t miss out on a huge part of history right here in our own city.

IMG_7598(It’s interesting and smart that all the lights on facing outward so that drivers cannot see any of the lights from the driving span.  I could see this being very distracting if drivers could see the lighting)

This is such a beautiful site to see and a cherry on top of one of the most beautiful cities in the world.  If you work in the city, don’t forget to take the long way home sometimes.  In my case, this is what I see when I take the long way and it’s the best way to end my day.  Enjoy!

  1. That must be awesome to see, even in the rain. Wife and I have been in Huntington Beach a week now, go back to Michigan tomorrow but the weather turned cold and rainy down here really fast. Summer will come soon and you can see that bridge in the warmth!

  2. We were there, too, and I thought about you and your trusty camera….wondering if I’d be lucky enough to see some photos. These are fantastic!
