In honor of the Bay Bridge's 75th anniversary, we held a photo contest to show SF's second-favorite bridge some much-deserved love. We had almost 500 entries on Instagram and Twitter, and were blown away by the incredible photographers in our city. Although the winner has already been chosen and notified, we still want to share a few of our favorite entries with you.
