The Cold and Necessary Bay

When I took this picture I saw the line of light above the hills, god trailing her finger over all her creation. 

Now on my computer I see mostly the bridge, masterwork of human endeavor, with its big bolts, and thick grease, and heavy ironwork. 

In between them lies the water, cold and deep and ever changing, full of strange and dangerous life, a gorgeous and terrifying mystery, connecting man and god.

  1. I love this one because it communicates the toughness of the golden gate -- which a lot of us -- meaning me -- forget about it as it emerges ethereal out of the fog.

  2. Thanks, Evy. I love the grease and grit of this one, too.
