He asked, “What makes a man a writer?” “Well,” I said, “it’s simple. You either get it down on paper, or jump off a bridge.

    • The connection is the Bukowski quote about jumping off a bridge and the photo of this bridge. It’s not what Bukowski had in mind when he wrote what he wrote, but even if it’s not exactly the Golden Gate, it’s stil a bridge 🙂
      Big enough to jump off, but small enough so that you won’t hurt yourself.

    • That’s correct my friend: f/8 according to the data on the original photo.
      I used the standard crappy 18-55mm lens that comes with most Canon DSLR cameras.

  1. It doesn’t seem to me that jumping off a bridge alone could make a writer. He would still have to write on the page… or on the computer.
