Pier Before The Fall

This is one in a series of broken down piers in Bradenton Beach. Actually, there are big barriers in front to keep people off, but I'm sure that doesn't apply to fishermen or photographers, right? In any case, this is one of the last shots you'll see because they are deconstructing and removing them all. I think that's kind of sad because I feel they add character, but that's just me. I'm sure the beach will look even more pristine once they're gone. In general, I'm all for piers, they give us all a chance to go out over the water with very little effort. And of course I like taking pictures of them at sunset. I guess I'll just have to focus on something else.
