Pic of the Day

Hop, Skip, and a Jump Outside the Condo

So I just got home from the family vacation to NYC. We stayed in an amazing condo in Hoboken, directly across the hudson from the city and right next to the Ferry to take us across each day. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Hoboken is the only part of NJ that is worth being on this planet, and the view from the condo was absolutely gorgeous. 

But if you know me, you know I can't just settle for taking a pic out the window. My wife and I took some shots one night from the pier right outside the condo. While she was shooting I was eyeballing a pier that had been taken out of commission by Sandy a couple years back. It didn't seem to have any access, but I had to find a way on it. 

After some investigating, I found one narrow strip of broken concrete and rebar holding this pier to the street. It was about 5 feet long and 2 foot wide, of jagged loose cement. The next night I hoped a pretty small fence and lowered myself down and jumped across to the sketchy swaying pier.

I spent about an hour shooting all kinds of interesting things, up and down it, but this shot was one of my favorites. Edited during a layover in atlanta on my way home today, I bring you the Pic of the Day :)

Hope you Enjoy.
