SHARE: Photos of the Golden Gate Bridge

The iconic span turns 75th next week; what's your favorite memory of it Watsonville?

It's never too early to start planning a celebration and the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge on May 27th promises to be a big one.

I love bridges. Just the idea of "bridging" two areas and two communities makes sense. Bridges make me feel good. I grew up in New York within walking distance of the majestic George Washington Bridge, the country's first suspension bridge, and its steel art deco architecture as it stretches across the mighty Hudson River still takes my breath away.

The first time I ever saw the Golden Gate Bridge was when I flew to San Francisco to interview with Patch for this position (!) two years ago in April 2010. From my childhood friend's Pacific Heights apartment window I caught my first glimpses of the span of the big orange bridge. It was beautiful and magnificent. That afternoon, Marissa and her daughter took me to Baker Beach for a better view.

When was the first time you saw the bridge? What's your favorite picture of you with the bridge?

Add them to this article with a caption!

Heads up! We'll ask you to put up other Golden Gate Bridge photos in the future in different categories, like most creative angle and best composition. So get them ready!

The 11th Cavalry was detailed to drive the VIPs over the bridge during the opening ceremonies. My Dad drove the scout car with the Governor of California as a passenger in the back seat. According to family legend, the wind caught my Dad’s cap and it blew off never to be recovered. I’ve only seen one grainy old newsreel that really followed the action for any length of time. It was a long time ago and I just saw it that one time, but I watched carefully and thought I could actually see his cap bouncing along behind the cars.
