Pier, Bodega Bay By Jane LurieJuly 14, 2013 ( 53 ) “I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay. Watching the tide roll away. Ooh, I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay.

Feels like we are right there in the water. The black and whites and the one with hint of color are my favs. These Remind me of a neat pier restaurant we went to on west coast – Moonshadows I think it was called. Thanks! dsup Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 16, 2013 • 12:02 am Hi Diane- I love how these pier images are a reminder of good meals on piers in various parts of the world. Thanks! Reply ↓ Linda Wyatt July 15, 2013 • 8:29 pm These photos brought back memories of piers and docks in NC where we used to have the most wonderful seafood restaurants built into the docks ,,, we knew the catch was fresh… Rustic, weathered, no matter.. Those pilings supported important stuff! As do they still… Love the photos. Linda Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 15, 2013 • 11:56 pm Linda, How wonderful that you shared your memories of great meals on docks in NC. A “roll-up-your-sleeves” kind of meal with the sun setting and family at the table. Thank you! Reply ↓ Pixelmacher July 15, 2013 • 4:59 pm These photos are wonderful, Jane. My favorite is the first one. A very mystical view… Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 15, 2013 • 9:34 pm Hi Martin, Thank you very much. I thought it worked well in B&W– so glad you like it. Appreciate your compliment. Reply ↓ rabirius July 15, 2013 • 3:43 pm Really wonderful pictures. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 15, 2013 • 4:27 pm Hi Rabirius- Thank you very much. Reply ↓ Jeannie July 15, 2013 • 9:50 am Great photos Jane, I love the Piers, Color….a hint of green in the water, a touch of gold on the rock, the illumination of the white on the pier and building…all against the grey background…colors , lighting and music….Priceless! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 15, 2013 • 11:09 am Jeannie, Thank you and I really enjoyed your lovely description. So nice! Reply ↓ april kanew July 15, 2013 • 8:55 am something so peaceful about a dock standing in the water all by itself….especially in the calm moments….on that note…..just love the reflection of the ‘morning dock’…just fabulous stuff!! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 15, 2013 • 2:29 pm Thank you, April, my friend. It’s a special spot for photographs. Reply ↓ Tina Schell July 15, 2013 • 7:45 am Lovely Jane; I like the mystical feel of the first shot. Well done! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 15, 2013 • 2:29 pm Thanks, Tina. It was a classic foggy morning that burned off pretty quickly. Works in B&W, I think. Reply ↓ Jane Iwan July 15, 2013 • 7:03 am Really nice shots, Jane. There’s something mysterious about the first one. Must be the way you captured the light. Reply ↓ mariayarri July 15, 2013 • 5:14 am Love the song as well as your photos ! // Maria 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 20, 2013 • 12:55 pm Thank you so much, Maria! Reply ↓ lasport July 15, 2013 • 2:09 am And the Birds? 😊 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 15, 2013 • 2:12 am Ha! LASport, There’s lots of Birds memorabilia– one store had a whole wall of Hitchcock and Tippy. Thanks for stopping by! Reply ↓ Lichtgewimmel July 15, 2013 • 1:15 am Very atmospheric photographs! And one of my alltime favourite songs 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 15, 2013 • 2:04 am Hi Light Crowd– Thank you! And who doesn’t like a little Otis to start the day? Glad you did. Reply ↓ Lichtgewimmel July 15, 2013 • 9:12 am Haha – like you translation! Light crowd is perfect… And one could misunderstand easily – light kraut fits too! Lol 😀 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 15, 2013 • 2:30 pm I think I got that from the English translation on your blog– do enlighten me– what is your name? Reply ↓ Lichtgewimmel July 15, 2013 • 5:06 pm No, no Jane… you have been right! I think I never translated my wordpress-name, but the google translator makes “light throng” out of it. I do not think that this meets the word, that I wanted to impress. Light crowd is better. At least, it might not be really translateable, because the german word has got “overtones”. Perhaps “swarm” would meet it in some way… How would this sound to your native speaker ears:”light swarm”? 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 15, 2013 • 11:54 pm Hi Stefan– Honestly, “light swarm” doesn’t quite make sense in English. The closest I can get is “gathering light” or “light gatherer”. Fun discussion! Reply ↓ Lichtgewimmel July 16, 2013 • 1:19 am This really is funny! Sort of ” self finding” 😉 Isn’t gathering = collecting? If so, this is not, what I liked to impress. Perhaps “bustling light” makes sense… It seems to me, that light is in some way a chaotic thing. So many influences – Not only one Source and One camera or eye. Reply ↓ Lichtgewimmel July 16, 2013 • 1:23 am Oups – sent too early… I wanted to add, that a photographer is sort of a fisherman, fishing in an ocean of light photons swarming around. 🙂 I hope my english is good enough to make this understandable… 😯 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 16, 2013 • 11:47 am Hi Stefan, Your English is very good. These are all good ideas! Reply ↓ Lichtgewimmel July 16, 2013 • 12:41 pm If I only could believe this… 😉 It’s only school and Business english and I am missing so many words in special fields. But I enjoy our conversations and like to practise… Jane Lurie July 16, 2013 • 1:33 pm Enjoyed it. hjs1951 July 15, 2013 • 12:17 am Wonderful! I love the compositions and reflections. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 15, 2013 • 1:04 am Thanks, Jurgen. Glad you enjoyed these. Reply ↓ hjs1951 July 15, 2013 • 1:12 am You are welcome Jane! You’re a genius behind the lens. Glad I found your inspirational blog. Have a great week! Reply ↓ Suzie July 14, 2013 • 10:28 pm Reflections! More ways then one! Suzie Reply ↓ Bailey Schell July 14, 2013 • 10:10 pm Jane, Really like the abstract feel/approach. Pretty cool. Bailey Sent from my iPad Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 14, 2013 • 10:49 pm Thanks, Bailey! You’re nice to let me know. Reply ↓ Mary July 14, 2013 • 9:12 pm Fantastic pier pictures and perfect song lyrics as a backdrop. The reflections and lighting are spectacular. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 14, 2013 • 9:13 pm Hi Mary, Thank you so much. I was pretty enamored by this spot… would make a good painting!

Reply ↓ larencev July 14, 2013 • 6:05 pm How do you make old piers look so mysterious and tantalizing?!? Love it in black and white especially. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie July 14, 2013 • 6:17 pm Hi Ginny– This was such a magical morning in Bodega, foggy and still, then it cleared a bit as I was shooting. Glad you like the black and white. Thank you!
