Dock Art. Photography & Text by Keith R Wahl
Acknowledging the spirit of the effort

I have spent a lifetime walking around docks and piers. Most of them are wooden. An artisan, a craftsman (or a group of them) build these functional waterfront structures.
On occasion, someone will take the time to build a small accent into the dock. It is their signature. It is something that says that they care about their work. It shows that they care about the people that they built the structure for. It leaves a smile, a pleasant point for everyone's day.
People like this are why I often walk around with a camera. It is incumbent to the very observant to document these efforts of happiness. The least I can do is acknowledge the effort and point it out to others. Someone wanted to make our day better. And we acknowledge the pleasant moment that they were so gracious to give us.
