Ocean piers are such interesting objects. They stretch out into the water beyond the breakers standing on fragile piling of wood. Wonderful for fishing, they draw lots of people to their ends. Casting line in the water men and women sit there waiting patiently for a bite. As I walk under the pier, I see the planks and bolts holding it together. It is strong but the next hurricane has the potential to twist it out of shape or tear it out of the water.

Fall Storm // twists backbone
