    No matter what your plans were these last two days, it's likely riding the new Bay Bridge was definitely a highlight. The eye-catching ivory structure was ogled for the first time by many city dwellers, since the entire length of it was closed off during Labor Day weekend. Well, for everyone except local photographer Arturo Torres, who got to travel down the original Western span during construction (which was like a ghost town!) with a camera and model Leah Wade from Look Model Agency in tow. He was granted a mere five minutes to snap a fashion editorial on the scene, and he certainly rose to the challenge.

    The results? Let's just say they could have stopped traffic...oh wait.
