Under Construction and Decommissioned

The Space Shuttle Endeavor aboard it's custom 747 flies behind the Oakland Bay Bridge while still under construction. As one era passes to history, another begins hopefully a long and iconic existence. I thought the lattice of the crossing cables made an interesting foreground for the shuttle as it passed on the Eastern side of Treasure Island.

I the construction workers climbing those towering steps each morning often feel as if they are climbing to the heavens.
