The lonely pier

I had originally intended to post this and the previous shot together as a set... until a somewhat unexpected turn of events intervened. In stark contrast to the garish frivolity of its grander counterpart no more than a mile away and several hours ago, I felt myself overcome by a wave of stoic melancholy as I gazed upon the long-abandoned pier. But how little was I to know that I would soon see life once again in black and white…


The Old Pier, Weston-super-Mare, UK. 29th June 2008. Canon 40D W/18-55 IS.

MarcoCastagnaro Dunno if it's good or not seeing in black and white, but the shot is great mate (;

mybigbackyard Gorgeous b&w - very artistic. I especially like the gate/fence and how it really draws the eye.

Daryl I love walking out on piers like this! Sometimes it's important to go out on your own. The bw treatment is right for this quiet sort of place. Then, I think I'm getting into bw again!

????? For me these are two different sensations: this lonely pier is also sad. The previous is lonely, but with hope.
