I like the view from underneath the overpass. Neat photo!
As much as I love nature photography, there is also something compelling about photos of man-made structures. Well done.
I have been there many times. I appreciate the beauty of the underpass.
Interesting shot, the urban jungle
I can almost hear the traffic…Jennifer
I don't know what to say ! But I was here … ! Lol.
Great shots. It took me a second to realise that the cars in the second photo were parked!
Interesting shots! Haven't seen one like that. Happy WW!
It amazes me low little makes a highway–a little concrete, tar, and steel“yet it is so important to us and plays a central role in every aspect of our lives. Nice shots.
Nice city shots! I love San Fran
it's amazing where you can find art! happy wednesday…
Heehee! For a second I thought those cars were driving through those big metal X-es!
welcome to House Panthers Luna! You are a very pretty addition to our group.
If I could drive, i'd go nuts on those highways!
A day in the life of the city, nice shot!
I've driven on the I80 in the past, but never further west than Pennsylvania…
I like the pictures very much, that's a big bridge!
Thanks for dropping by, have a great WW!

Cool shot! Thanks for stopping by! Happy WW!
Bridges are NOT cool. That's why we don't live in a big city anymore.
I do not like those cross pieces underneath that seem to be holding up that heavy highway with all those people on it. I know it is safe but it does not look reassuring.
How amazing that it looks completely different during the day and night under those bridges;-)
Arrrgh! Traffic. BTW, what was all that trusses doing in the midst of the road?
It must be so hard for those drivers down there.
I wouldnt trust the bridge after the SF earthquake years ago. A little scary;-)…Happy WW and thanks for stopping by.
Talk about using every available space for parking!
I have generally been inspired by the urban industrial landscape around me, as in [url=http://www.ptank.com/catsynth/index.php?entry=entry080210-204555]this earlier post[/url]. I did not expect such interesting and provocative comments for this post.
I think the main supports of the highway are the big concrete columns, and the metal X's are braces, for seismic support. You see a lot of X-braces on buildings here, too.
The San Francisco Skyway (I-80) is relatively old, but made it through the 1989 earthquake OK. I might actually report on this in more detail in a future post. The history of the freeways in San Francisco, and their gradual demolition for seismic safety and other issues, is quite interesting.
And yes, parking in San Francisco is quite scarce, so you will find cars parked anywhere it hasn't been declared illegal.
That certainly is an interesting picture and parking situation.
Thanks for stopping by and having a snowburger with the bbqing snowguys. They liked your laughter.
interesting photos! happy ww.
Yes, I noticed a lot of x's. Happy Thursday
…I never thought that San Fransisco is a very limited space coz' in order to park a car could do it under the highway? That's rare;) btw, if you got nothing but itme try to sneak-peak into [url=http://felinesophy.blogspot.com]http://felinesophy.blogspot.com[/url] and have ur vote:)
See yaw around!
Cool pictures ~ have a fun Thursday and a great weekend!
Purrs from the SnowForest family
great pics – what a busy place
Not sure what to say about photos either. Wonder why folks park underneath highways? :|
Weirdly compelling… and nothing like it in my neck of the globe.
