Beauty Taken for Granted

It is time to remind ourselves to be thankful for the things we take for granted, for example, our Golden Gate Bridge. May 27 marked 79 years that the bridge has been open to the public.

Here are home movies, 35mm, color film footage of an aerial view of the bridge and the City, without the help of something called a drone, from the 1960s.

Here is the updated view from drone footage of the bridge and the City.

Although we may natives may take it for granted, some call this site one of the “World’s Greatest Attractions” – like this

So if you commute to San Francisco over the bridge or just use it from time to time, the next time you are about to cross, take a deep breath and enjoy one of the best reasons – even in traffic – for living in the Bay Area.

Best wishes,
