The Pier of St. Petersburg, Florida presents at this time a unique opportunity for local photographers. It is by far the city's most recognizable landmark, but it is scheduled for demolition in one year's time. A part of me does not necessarily believe in the end it will be razed because what is slated to replace it, a structure called "The Lens," is so preposterously fantastic I cannot imagine such a thing existing just off the modest St. Pete waterfront.
The odd shutter time of 4.3 seconds for this shot is due to shooting in bulb mode. I took a test shot and then based on feel kept the shutter open how long I thought it would need. A more scientific way would have been to use a stopwatch, but for exposures of only about 4 seconds a rough estimate counting in your head is good enough.
