Southport Pier in Queensland originally was a beautiful wooden pier but that was way before my time. Finally when I discovered it, it had been renovated into the lovely charming cement structure we see before us. I guess we have to be practical and the new pier will outlast the old one by many a year but I mourn the texture and grain and charm of the wooden structure. I will forever be on the look out for the wooden kind and when I find it I will photograph it thoroughly and cherish the memories. My only problem is I don’t think I can stop at one ….. Yes fetish it is!
