Unique Stock Photos of and from the San Francisco Bay Bridge

 

 

Right Before the New Eastern Span of the San Francisco Bay Bridge opened I had a unique opportunity to assist a friend and also get some shots of my own. Even for those who live here in the Bay Area some of the skyline photos might not seem so unique without explanation. But basically the only way these photos could be taken were because the bridge was closed to all but a tiny amount of traffic thus allowing long nighttime exposures from the bridge.

And while being allowed to walk right down the lanes of the bridge (both the new and old sections.) I got a few abstract shots of construction, signs, bolts, girders, etc.

Thanks for looking!

Welcome

I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with this domain for a while. I really like the name “Urban Texture” that evokes a strong mental image, at least for me. Many of the photos I take don’t seem to fall in the category that I think befitting of the name. However, I think for the time being at least, I’m going to try just using this site as a platform to upload recent images of any type, discuss what I think is interesting in the world of photography and perhaps beyond, and who knows what else. So stay tuned for more.

Thanks,

Michael Halberstadt
