Watery Wednesday #12: What's Up Dock?


"What's Up Dock?"
Atlantic Beach, NC - October 2008 (Click to embiggen)

Watery Wednesday

If you're going across the Causeway bridge between Atlantic Beach and Morehead City, you might miss this little cluster of docks tucked away beside the main road. In all the times I've been across this bridge, I don't remember ever stopping here before last October when I pulled in behind an under-renovation motel to get a few shots of Morehead City from across Bogue Sound.

This evokes summertime and dangling your feet in the water.

The sepia gives the impression of years ago photos. Very nice.

Docks are naturally scenic spots ... but often a taking off point into sights beyond.

Great photo all round. Just beautiful, it has a warmth to it that is so inviting.

The last time I shot beside an under-renovation motel, I stuck to sepia as well, and I got the same kind of chills in my spine that I'm feeling now.

Beautifully evocative work, and a timely reminder that we need spend more time taking the roads less travelled.

Funny, isn't it, how sometimes we overlook what's right there in front of our noses. Love your title.
