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.
