Life Around The Old Pier

  1. I really like the second shot, the framing, the industrial background…even the bird flying (you just had to include a bird didn’t you?) 😛 The second to the last image is also really cool!

    • Lol… of course David, I have to include the bird — just for you. Actually, I didn’t even know it was there until I upload it on the computer. Hey, from what I’ve seen lately of your bird shots — I think your bird repellent days just might be over. (knock on wood) 😉

    • Thanks Sasi. I noticed the shell was actually alive because it squirted water on my leg. And dug it out of the sand to pose for the shot. 🙂

  2. Good shots – better than what I got there. Looking at your shots I can almost smell that wonderful low tide aroma again… 😉

    • Thanks Mike. Yup, gotta love that low tide, stinky mud aroma with a hint of crude oil. It was fun shooting there. Though, I think we have been placed on those men in black — I mean… construction worker’s terrorist list. 😉

  3. Emily, they are all superb as usual. I really like the clam shell. Everything about the light, position, it’s great! I would hang in in my bathroom wall, so I had something wonderful to look at. 😉

    • Aww… thank you so much Martina for the compliment. 🙂 If you like, I would be happy to email you a high resolution copy of the shell photo.

  4. These are lovely shots! Looks like a really good time at the pier. We have a fun pier near here in Santa Cruz, but I like the colors and textures you shot much more. My favorite is the shot of the pole with the rest of the poles and background falling away to a nice bokeh, Very nice!

    • I’ve been to the pier in Santa Cruz many years ago. It was a fun place. I like exploring and shooting at broken down places like the old pier and try to capture beauty in what most people can’t see. Though unlike the fun pier in Santa Cruz… the only things you’ll find are rusty pipes and barnacles, broken concrete, smelly shellfish, and a close up view of the oil refinery. But… they sure do make interesting subjects for the camera. 🙂
