    These are some of the bare wooden pilings surrounding Pier 43 in the San Francisco. This is an old industrial pier with a large archway and train tracks. It is in a state of disrepair but is being restored. I found whole scene quite interesting and took several photos.

    I refer to shapes like these as "henges" :)

    Another great shot. I've always loved wharves and piers, especially old ones.

    It's an interesting composition. As for the pier, it definitely looks like it has seen its better days.

  13. Matthew James Didier Says:

    Yeah, I have to parrot everyone here… "Pier Henge"? "Wood-In-Water Henge"? "43 Henge"?

    What a great photo!

  15. Jean at Penny Lane Says:

    Pier Henge — I agree, a very appropriate title.
    It leaves one to imagine doings at that spot decades ago.

  16. Angus Mhor Says:

    It's interesting to note that the henge design is not a modern invention, by any means.

  17. Amy @ The Q Family Says:

    Very interesting arrangement in the pier. Great shot!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Happy WW!

    That is a really cool photo!

    ps: You are more than welcome to use my "piano" playing photo or the animated GIF! I do not know if I will ever become a good player. But I will keep practicing.

    Cool shot! Love the "driftwood" look of those massive, sunbleached piers. ThanX for stopping by via WW.

  23. dcr Says:

    That's an interesting photo. It's like a flooded Greek tragedy!

  24. Sophia Says:

    Great photo! I really love all the docks in SF. BTW – did Luna get her Snuggle?

  25. Sushi Says:

    :) Awesome! Mama was in SF 2 weeks ago.

    I liked our Galveston Pier 19 better, it had a nice seafood restaurant on it. Now it is Joe's Crab Shack Pier 19 which doesn't have nearly such good seafood. It sits next to pier 16-18 BANANA TERMINAL, Del Monte Fresh Produce docks.
    Happy WW, I still like your picture (but I like our pier better). Thanks for checking in on Dusty.

  27. Michael Ivy Says:

    That is a very nice shot!

  28. Kitty Says:

    Happy WW! Yes, very nice pic. Hope they leave all this alone while restoring the area.

  29. Ruis Says:

    What a beautiful photo! It sure is an interesting and a great shot!!

  30. yaffa Says:

    We have always wanted to go to the Pier in San Francisco, we've never been there!

  31. Tink *~*~* Says:

    I like this photo very much. I miss going to the pier and crabbing with my husband, or visiting the farmer's market. This picture brought back fond memories. Thank you.

  36. pete Says:

    Henges, lol. I'm going to use that if you don't mind.

    I love photos of weathered stuff like this, especially macro shots of weathering. It's another world.

    BTW, I've [url=http://mygpscameraphone.com/2008/07/17/using-layers-and-blending-modes-with-one-image]posted the process[/url] I used for yesterday's photo.
