I have to say, the new lights on the San Francisco Bay Bridge are beyond awesome. They’re animated with a computer controlled system to run different moving patterns across the entire set of spans that make up the main part of the bridge between The City and Yerba Buena Island. It’s hard to capture to full impact with a still photo.
I suspect that the lights will be popular enough to be made permanent after the initial 2-year installation.
I’d like to get a photo of the bridge lights with a more colorful sky. In the meantime here’s a photo that shows the basic idea of how the new lights look — you have to imagine moving patterns rolling and floating across all of the lighted wires.
This is awesome. Go to 7:08 to see the artists at the market and a view of the since-removed freeway in front of the San Francisco Ferry Building.
