The Golden Gate, Up Close

The Golden Gate is awesome, whether we view it with a tourist’s or technical person’s perspective.

My brother, who’s an engineer, shared with me his photos from our trip to San Francisco. I noticed his focus on the details of the Golden Gate.

I Left My Heart In San Francisco

The loveliness of Paris seems somehow sadly gray
The glory that was Rome is of another day
I’ve been terribly alone and forgotten in Manhattan
I’m going home to my city by the Bay

I left my heart in San Francisco
High on a hill, it calls to me
To be where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars
The morning fog may chill the air, I don’t care

My love waits there in San Francisco
Above the blue and windy sea
When I come home to you, San Francisco
Your golden sun will shine for me

I Left My Heart in San Francisco” is a popular song, written in the fall of 1953 in Brooklyn, New York, with music by George Cory and lyrics by Douglass Cross (1920–1975) and best known as the signature song of Tony Bennett.
