An interesting statue and the Bay Bridge


This is statue of a bow and arrow near Fisherman's Wharf. I couldn't find any information on it but you know I like statues. I like this more for the picture of the Bay Bridge in the back ground. The Bay Bridge connects Oakland and San Francisco. It is a double decker bridge and it is quite amazing. A little bit intimidating to drive over what with all the distractions around you! There is a $4.00 toll charge to cross this bridge. Fortunately, you only pay one way....so I guess it really works out to be $2.00 either way!

  2. I told you already that I walked back and forth over the Golden Gate, but not this one. Was in SF / Oakland later professionally and crossed by car. Fabulous!

  4. You travel a lot, Neva!

    I visited a part of San Francisco two years and a half ago. I loved it there. I should have a look in my photos to see if I have taken the photo of that original sculpture.

  5. Hi Neva, this week was another hectic one, so I’m sorry to have been a bit absent. Anyhow TGIF, so I managed to drop by to see some wonderful pictures. It seems that you were also moving a lot: SF, Chicago... ;)
    Loved to see the Alcatraz picture. Never got that close...
    Hope you enjoy Oia and its sunset at Blogtrotter.
    Have a great weekend!

  7. Great shot. One can't walk across the Bay bridge and it may be pretty but at commute time its a nightmare.
    I can't remember the name and history of the sculpture. I'll have to scout it out if I can.

  9. Interesting. Just a giant bow & arrow for no reason? Some "artists" are just mostly odd, no? :)

  10. Very neat. They must have been really big to use that bow and arrow.

  11. What a great shot, Neva. And isn't that some mass transit coming into view on the right side? You know how much I love mass transit. I Googled and found out that piece is called Cupid's Span.

  12. Maybe it is a kind of tribute to the Indians who lived there before the land was used by other people for different things. It would be interesting to find out.
