I Heart Distance

Just two guys on the end of the pier, fishing and drinking Sun Drop. You can’t get any more southern than this, y’all!



This week’s theme on I Heart Faces is “From a Distance.” I wish this could be the theme every week. I would certainly have a lot of photos to choose from, since most of my photos are snapped from a distance, around my town and are often candid, random shots of strangers.

Because, let’s face it, it’s easier to take a photo of a stranger from several feet away.

I snapped this photo last summer on Johnny Mercer’s Fishing Pier in Wrightsville Beach, NC. The end of the pier is my favorites spot on this earth. I did not edit this photo at all – it is SOOTG (straight out of the camera!)

I Heart Faces is a photography sharing forum that focuses on the art of capturing faces and their various emotions. Each week, people from across the world enter their favorite face photos.

The Kure Beach Fishing Pier Pelican

This is for Wordless Wednesday, Thursday Edition. Easy as pie to play, y’all. Just post a picture of anything you like, link to their site and you’re in! It doesn’t matter if it’s not Wednesday. Every day has an edition!

This picture was taken in Kure Beach, NC on the famous Kure Beach Fishing Pier. (That’s pronounced ker-ree, for all y’all non-residents and Yankees.)  It is the oldest fishing pier on the Atlantic seaboard, built in 1923.

This pelican is so used to folks that he’ll sit right there, real quiet like, and let you sneak up on him to get his picture.
