Sunset and Silhouettes at the Pier
It's back to back Paradise Pier posts, but this time, I wanted to feature a detail that hones in more on photographic texture and play of light. A few weeks ago, I found myself upon Paradise Bay as the sun was setting. Though there weren't any clouds to allow for a dramatic sunset, the low golden light still made for a lovely ambiance, and I decided that it would be interesting to zoom in on a silhouette-ish shot through steel and supports and structure to give a photo that conveyed a nostalgic emotion of the setting day. Unlike my normal wide open shots, this was a nice break that allowed me to concentrate a little more on the specific composition and nature of my shot.
