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.
