I recently created architectural photos of the New San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridge on behalf of my client Central Concrete and Anne Banta of Rent-A-VP, Corporate Communications. Besides the photos you see here, you can view more photos in my Flickr album. Central Concrete supplied over a quarter of a million square yards of concrete for the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. The recently opened bridge had a significantly reduced carbon footprint due to Central’s use of cement replacement materials, a specialty of theirs. Central wanted architecturally beautifully photos of the bridge for an album commemorating the opening of the Bridge. They hired me to go out the a few days before the bridge opened to create the photos. The album also featured some great shots by employees of Central as the bridge was built. Projects like this showing the process of a companies business are a favorite of mine.
The bridge is the world’s largest self-anchored suspension span at 2,407 feet. It’s distinctive 525 tall tower will someday have a glass elevator as well. There is a bike lane that stretch from Yerba Buena Island to Oakland.
The former home of Admiral Nimitz sits under the part of the bridge. The home was used for opening ceremonies.
