These photos are wonderful, thank you so much. I can never tire of seeing that bridge whether in person or on film. I don't think you can ever take a bad picture of that bridge. One of the many great places to shoot from is Baker's Beach, especially on a sunny day.

I have a wonderful photo, enlarged and framed - black and white - from 1939, It shows a Boeing B-314 flying over the bridge coming into the bay. Marin is across the way and looking down one sees the NN/W tip of the presidio. There is the bridge approach from Lincoln Blvd. and the toll booths - and the row of the old pilots' houses along that curve on Lincoln. We were living in one of those houses in 1939, so the picture is kinda special to me.
