Sitting on the dock of the bay...

Oh. How I love that song. Otis Redding for those of you that don't know. And if you don't know, you are really missing out. It is a great song. I'm sad that his career ended shortly after doing that song. As a matter of fact, "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay" was recorded only three days before Redding's death. I could of loved him for a long, long time.

On to my little Otis tribute. My dock in these photos (except for one...which is the Penascola Beach Pier) is behind Joe Patti's Seafood. It always has that real ocean smell. And is usually quiet. I like walking on it and taking pictures of whatever happens to be there that day.

This last one is the Pensacola Beach Pier on a very calm day. Normally you don't get such a reflection of the pier because of the waves. So, to me, this is special.

I love that song too..., and didn't know that he passed on so shortly after. I'm sure you also know that he composed that song while living on a houseboat in Sausalito...

Beautiful images you have here, and I also love all the quotes!

@Maya, No...I didn't know that. Very interesting. He was so young. Such a shame.

Sharon I'm always in such a hurry when I go to Joe Patti's. I keep promising myself to go back when I don't need to shop and take some pictures. You've captured the essence of a real fishing fleet. Great series of photos.

This is a strange but captivating picture. Chaos and order. Neat.
