With a bow to the Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849), whose woodblock series 100 Views of Mt. Fuji celebrates Japan's iconic mountain, this book is a lush photographic paean to San Francisco's world-famous icon--the majestic Golden Gate. In this tribute to the natural wonders of the San Francisco landscape, as well as the enduring marvel of the Golden Gate Bridge, professional photographer/writer and Bay Area native Harold Davis has created a collection of over 100 striking digital photographs of the Gate--the strait that connects the San Francisco Bay to the Pacific Ocean and the Bridge itself--taken from different vantage points, times of day and night, and seasons. Awash in color and mood, the all-color digital images in this book show that the Golden Gate is worth a look again and again and again.
