Back last December, while traveling up north, I had the chance to spend the weekend with my sister who lives in Berkeley. At the time, the north state was getting hit pretty hard by one of those ‘pineapple expresses’ as some call it (atmospheric river storms, if you’re a water geek like me). There was a break in the seemingly incessant storms that had been pounding the area for days, so we went out to Treasure Island.
What I really wanted to see was the construction of the new section of the Bay Bridge. If I lived up here, I would do a lot of photoblog posts on the bridge as the construction proceeds. I am fascinated by bridge construction and I would love to learn more about it.
Here are some older pictures I have of the construction. This shot below is from an airplane in 2009.
