Piece description from the artist
When we visited San Francisco in 2011, I was a bit disappointed at the grey skies and fog that were present on the day we went to the Golden Gate Bridge. I've always seen the iconic bridge bathed in sunlight and warm colors in media and popular photography.
I was pleasantly surprised that even though the sky was grey, the iconic red bridge stood out in a beautiful way from the fog. It is calm and serene, much as I felt when taking this photo.
Melinda Klein is a Chicago-based digital and film photographer, who prides herself on learning through experience. She grew up all around the country, living across the midwest and the east coast. It was living in these vastly different places, from cities, to suburbs, to rural areas, that inspired her love for such diverse areas of photography. She began taking photographs professionally when she moved to Chicago in 2007.
Melinda's biggest passion is wildlife and nature photography but most of her wildlife photography is taken in zoos and aquariums. She photographs the animals to look as though they were shot in nature in an effort to document the lives of flora and fauna that exist in a man-made habitat.
