With a bow to the Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849), whose woodblock series 100 Views of Mt. Fuji celebrates Japan's iconic mountain, this book is a lush photographic paean to San Francisco's world-famous icon??????and the official symbol of the State of California??????the majestic Golden Gate. In this masterful tribute to the natural wonders of the San Francisco landscape, as well as the enduring aesthetic and engineering marvel of the Golden Gate Bridge, professional photographer/writer and Bay Area native Harold Davis has created a collection of over 100 striking photographs of the magnificent Golden Gate??????the strait that connects the San Francisco Bay to the Pacific Ocean and the Bridge itself??????taken from different vantage points, times of day and night, and seasons. Awash in color and mood, the all-color digital images in this book show that the Golden Gate is worth a look again and again and again.
