For the third year in a row I’m honored to have my photos included in the prestigious CA Photo Annual.

Golden Gate Bridge

Thirty years ago today, on May 24, 1987, 350,000 people were stuck in human gridlock for hours while getting a rare chance to cross the 1.7-mile bridge en masse on foot to celebrate the bridge’s golden anniversary. Officials quickly closed the bridge, so a half-million other people waiting to cross never got the chance. Still, the enormous, unprecedented weight caused the middle of the bridge to sag 7 feet.
