The San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge in San Francisco is a massive piece of engineering that's often eclipsed by the Golden Gate Bridge. More popularly known as The Bay Bridge, it doesn't have the heritage, the lore, the history of its crosstown rival. This is, of course, unfair. In any other city, I suspect this structure would be an icon instead of an afterthought.
So in the belief that anything can offer up a compelling perspective if we look hard enough, I walked over to the bridge and tried to capture it in ways that defied its in-the-shadows reputation.
Now that I've taken the shot, I'd like you to name it. It's called Caption This, and here's how you can make it happen:
It was a while before the shopkeeper noticed that his new advert for a male stripper was attracting rather a lot of attention.Minerva is, quite simply, the most courageously eloquent writer you'll ever meet in blogland. She's a mom, a cancer survivor, and an honest observer of life and all its brutal realities. Her site, A Woman of Many Parts, has become a must-read on my reading list. Please drop by and congratulate her for having a sharp eye (check out the box under the table) and a sharp wit.
