The art of transit

photo by Joe Dsilva, via Flickr

As I’ve written before, I’m a sucker for Golden Gate Bridge photos. This isn’t the first to run as part of our “art of transit” posts and I guarantee it’s not the last. The photo was taken with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II with a shutter speed of .3 seconds, aperture of f/5.6, focal length of 380 mm and a 200 ISO.

Some other Golden Gate photos we’ve featured are here, here and here.

To submit a photo or photos of something transportation-related, post them to Metro’s Flickr group or email them to The photos we’ve featured can be seen in these galleries on Flickr. Or click on the ‘art of transit’ in the categories box.

  1. It’s a lovely photo for contemplation… of how many times Marin County has failed to fund transit.

    The only buses that run in Marin are operated by the bridge authority as “Golden Gate Transit”.

    BART was originally designed to cross the Bridge. In fact, the wide-gauge track was to resist the heavy cross-winds. But the concept was stillborn, and now the wide-gauge is a very expensive legacy whenever it comes time to purchase equipment or build out the line.
