    if you can walk across the golden gate then i'd suggest that. get up close to the edge and get a real close up shot of one of the pillars meanwhile being able to see all the way down the bridge as it gets blurry. then adjust it so that you get the max dof so that the far end of the bridge is in focus. maybe fishermans warf too since they have long beds of fish, could make for an interesting shot.

    Maybe try the Japanese Tea Garden in San Jose? Koi ponds, beautiful plants, and some nice architecture.
