I like wharves.  Real wharves.  The kind that real people use for fishing, not the over-commercialized “restaurants, clubs, and boutiques” kind of wharves.  So when this night owl’s Midwestern body was still adjusting to the time change of the West Coast, and I found myself up at dawn, I didn’t hesitate to pull on sweats and go for a walk with my camera on the Old Fisherman’s Wharf in Monterey.  The fog was still thick on the horizon and the morning was a bit grey, but seals barked and frolicked in the water and I was by the ocean.  It was pure bliss!

Here are three of my shots from that early morning walk.  What do you think?  Do you have a favorite below?

Old Wharf Photo #1.  At the end of the Old Fisherman’s Wharf is the Monterey Fish Company.  While it was about 6:00 am when I took this shot, it appears to still sell fresh fish to the public on a daily basis.

Old Wharf Photo #2.  An old fishing net hangs off of the side of the wharf while boats remain docked at rest in the distance.

Old Wharf Photo #3.  Further up the coast, an old building from Cannery Row’s heyday juts out into the sea.
