Photo: Sunset Johnson St. Bridge

I know, I know… I’ve talked a bit ad nauseum about camera phone art… if it’s not can camera phone pictures be art? it’s a creative challenge to take your own poetic snap shot

And now at a time when I should be blogging about Feist’s or Sarah Slean’s new album, or my Turner Block repurposing proposal, or my fellow FA 350 classmate’s proposal to help the homeless… I’m once more drawn to camera phone art… But isn’t it beautiful?

The Mayor of our sleepy little town, in my opinion, is on some crazed legacy binge and is tearing it down to build a new one… It’s a historic bridge, by Strauss and Company, of the Golden Gate Bridge fame… one of the last Bridges of it’s type on the face of the planet… and it’s on the path to demolition. So we can’t have heritage designation for a working bridge, but we can have it for derelict, rotting, buildings that create dead spaces in our communities? Failed public policy at work.

Well at least the photo is beautiful and poetic even if the future of this icon is sad and wanton.

  1. Fantastic Mac! I took a few pictures on my BlackBerry Curve whlie on Galiano Island this holiday weekend. They look okay on the small screen … I will upload one to the creative challenge if they translate okay to a bigger view.
