Gone

April 20, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Going back in time today with two subjects that are never to be seen again. Both used to be on Buffalo's Outer Harbor. That's one of the powers of photography. It freezes time and stores it in a photograph potentialy for eternity.

The first photo is of an old pier that always caught my eye when I walked by. There was something attractive about the missing planks. It always made me wonder whether it would get fixed or dilapidate even more. And then one day it was gone!

The second photograph is of quite a bit larger structure with quite a bit more historic significance to Buffalo, NY. However, as with the pier, it bit the dust and is no more. A new development is planned for the location and it seems like the plans are still fluid. I personally am not a fan of a high-rise standing here neither would I like to see a swath of land being locked out for a private property. I have really enjoyed the revival of Buffalo's water front including the Outer Harbor and having public land on the lakeshore is wonderful.

And it seems like I am not the only on wiht that opinion. On warm days (under normal circumstances), you will find hundreds of people enjoying various activities along the lake. Buffalonians waited for many decades for that opportunity and I'd hate to see it go away.
