Old Piers on the Hudson River

I try to take some time each weekend to walk down the Hudson River. It’s a great way for me to reflect on the past week and let my mind wander a bit with new ideas. This weekend I decided to shoot each old pier that I walked by to see what patterns might emerge after looking at them in a set. First thing I noticed was that I didn’t realize that there was that many piers clustered together within a short distance of each other. The second thing was the placement of each pillar. Each pier had a unique spacing and placement of piers. Whether this was because each was designed by a different person or served a different purpose is something to ponder. I also wondered how each ended up being destroyed. Was it from a fire, decay or technology that made it obsolete? All those elements made the Saturday stroll a bit more interesting to consider.
