Retrospect

At one time, a long pier serviced the ships coming into the port of Evanston, Illinois. But somehow along the way, the need for a port at Evanston diminished and the pier eventually gave way to the elements depicted here - the ever-flowing water of lake Michigan and the ever-changing atmosphere.

The water still flows and the atmosphere still shifts and morphs. And both continue their slow consumption of something that used to be important.

I like the way the lines of the pier lead you out into the image. Good camera position.
