Most Photographed Bridge in The world

Every time we pass the Golden Gate Bridge, which we have to, twice a day, I am struck by throngs of people with their digital snapshot camera shooting pictures from everywhere. There is no place from which you can see this bridge, that people have not photographed, million of times.  I went to marine headlands, to see this from above, went to Baker beach to see from south and spent hours at Fort Point  ( http://www.nps.gov/fopo/index.htm  )shooting from below. By the way I was then remembering Jimmy Stewart rescuing Kim Novak in Vertigo. After 3 days and numerous attempts when I looked at all 450 or so of my pictures, there was nothing that I can not buy for 10 cents on a picture postcard.     But, in my humble attempts at sifting thru these, one jumped out and looked different to me.  I think the picture below brings the movement and energy of the bridge, its graceful curve and the second tower seen from incomplete but implied giant first tower, and finally the gesture of movement of hundreds of cars, brings out something that I wanted.
