Magical Pier Window

Magical Pier Window 

As we stopped at Sunset Beach, NC pier after a morning appointment, I was taking pictures and thought the Magical Pier Window was a perfect title to my photos for Wordless Wednesday.  But as usually, I always have to add words with my short poem!!


Magical Pier Window,

Opens to the sea.

The waves gently roll,

Peace and tranquility.

The sea looks so endless,

A sight not to miss.

Look through the pier,

God’s beauty so near.


Sometimes a black and white photo gives a different perspective on a photo.  Which is your favorite, black and white or color?


The beautiful Sunset Beach wooden fishing pier.  It was so peaceful, the beach was all ours, what a wonderful way to start the day looking through the magical pier window.

    Lovely photos and I love your poem.

  2. So, my answer is that converting a picture to black and white is not quite the same as taking the picture the first time in black and white. Back in the old days (ok, I actually still have my “film” camera, the mirror image to my digital one), we chose high speed color film (400; 1600 was pretty much just for slides- which is why I almost always chose slides) or black and white (true 1600).
    And, the contrasts in that black and white photo helped me enjoy black and white photos compared to color.
    When we shoot a photo in color- unless we specifically know we are going to opt to show it in black- does not keep us alert to the contrasts and drama that could obtain better in black and white.

  3. What an awesome view! I think the framing really shows up nicely in the low-colour and black and white versions of the photo 🙂

    Thanks Brenda, this one seems to flow out just like the ocean! Thanks for stopping by.

    That is so true Roy! Actually my granddaughter was the one that suggested to do a black and white photo, I like the contrasts much better! Ah to go back to the “old days” of film cameras! Thanks for visiting.

    Thanks Kyla, would you believe we’ve lived near the ocean since 1994 and this is the first time I taken a shot from under a pier! It was a gorgeous morning and we had the beach to ourselves except the the sea gulls and one visitor strolling by. Thanks for visiting the beach with me!

  7. What a beautiful poem! The picture was lovely, too, and I see why it seems magical. 🙂

    Thanks Jeanine, I like to think outside the box when I add captions and write my short poem. Thanks for visiting!

  9. I love your pier window! I also enjoy taking photos from under piers and bridges, but never considered them “magic” — just interesting.

    Breath taking! The ocean and its beauty at its best.

  11. Martha says:

    Thanks Barbara, I was looking for a word to go with the title that would be interesting and maybe give those that just say the title a reason to check it out. I too love to take bridges, old buildings and churches! Thanks for looking through my window!

    Thanks Andria, this part of the beach is so peaceful! Our next trip up, I want to go for sunrise! Thanks for looking through my window!

    Fabulous capture of the pier, very interesting seeing it from underneath. Your poem very nice, I can see it on greeting card…shared G+

    Thanks Sgolis, I enjoy coming up with short poems to go with my photos. Someday I hope to compile them all in a book. Maybe even use on a greeting card!
