Pier Love

If you’re like me, and I know many of you are, you come home from your travels with almost too many photos to look through, process, save or delete. How can it be that a simple 4 day trip to the Middle Peninsula of Virginia could yield over 400 photos?

Perhaps I should just PUT THE CAMERA DOWN.


  Since that will never happen, it was time to get to work!  In reviewing the photos from my time on the Middle Peninsula of Virginia, it was clear that one object garnered much of my attention.


What was it about this pier that kept catching my eye?


Was it the obvious presence of it?

Or it’s ability to stand quietly in the background?


Was it more striking against the colors of a cloudy sunrise?


Or did conversion to black and white bring out the beauty?

Perhaps it’s attraction was stronger after a storm?

Or maybe because it held memories of a lovely evening with friends?


Whatever the reason, I came home with too many pier photos to count.  I’ve picked the best of the lot and shared them with you here.  And if you’re still with me after viewing the first 12, I’ll hope you can handle just one more.


You may have seen this before.  It’s my favorite and as a amateur photographer, one that I am quite proud of.

Thanks for hanging in there with me as I present this photographic study of a Middle Peninsula pier.
