WATERY WEDNESDAY #66: Move the pilings?


This scene of Tampa's downtown business district is one that is easy to capture from several different vantage points. The heights and designs of the office buildings, the many colors, the bridge and balustrades of Bayshore Boulevard, all combine to create an interesting "portrait" of the city. Many shooting spots, such as this one from the tarpon dock where the Jose Gaspar pirate ship is moored, offer a nice reflection of the buildings and catch the skyline in the water, day and night. But, I've never deliberately including anything in the foreground to "mess it up." These pilings are part of the docks and can easily be cropped in the camera or in the computer...

I think old pilings like old people often work to make a good picture even better. Now if you had me sitting on that rotting piling, you'd be in photographic heaven! Heh. Heh!

Beautiful shot Frank. The old pilings really add an offset to the hard modern buildings. The reflection and lighting is superb here. I wouldn't change a thing.
