Girders, Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, 2009.

The Golden Gate Bridge's color is officially "International Orange," although it appears more reddish (this photo is a little washed out by the sun). The color was supposedly chosen because it blends nicely with the surrounding countryside, and shows up well in the fog. I have heard that the designer of the bridge was strongly influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright; the color is unmistakably "Wright Red."
