Oceanside Pier was first built in 1888 at what is now Wisconsin Avenue. The original pier was destroyed by storms in the winter of 1890, and was rebuilt in 1893 by Melchoir Pieper in its current location at Pier View Way. As a photographer, piers are easy prey, they offer so many opportunities. Such great shadows and lines. The endless draw of your line of sight and reflections on the wet sand can be mesmerizing. I'll fall for them every time.
