The first time I photographed the Golden Gate Bridge was back in 2005, back then I was on my last leg of my round the world trip with my friend. San Francisco was our last stop before we headed home back to London. Its always hard to shake those feelings of your first time, the first time you visited a new place, and to this day that trip back in 2005 I remember like it was yesterday. Back then I was using a Canon 10D and had a couple of 256mb CF cards and one lens which was the Canon 35-135mm f4-5.6. The photo of the bridge in 2005 was taken from Battery Spencer, Marin County. The photo below was taken from the Aquatic Park just off Beach Street in 2013 and this time round I had my 5Dmk2 coupled with  Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS and taken in the early evening. Truth be told my settings were not set when I took the shot, but when I viewed on the LCD screen I was happy. I didn’t bother re-taking the shot as it took me back to 2005 when I first took my photo of the bridge. This time round, I just loved the light. A photo for me not only captures a time in space for me but also captures the memories and feelings, its all locked up in that one shot.

Travelling is an amazing experience, its the greatest education one can get and adds more value to you as a person than anything else possible, live free, love life, go explore and see the world!
