Waterfront funk with red

Waterfront Building with Red - Astoria, Oregon What are the chances of finding a waterfront scene like this one with one isolated punched-out red board? (There were no others.) I don't know, but it caught my attention. I wonder if it has anything to do with the narrow truck bay out of sight on the left? Something like, "Whoah! Do not drive into the water." In any event, I love the old windows and the aging white-on-white of the building. I see a lot of things being painted this year. Of course, that preserves them, but I miss the weather-beaten art of the "before." I'm sure that's one reason God made cameras. I'd like to get over there again and get a close-up before this building gets cleaned up. There's one obstacle: cyclone fencing. But it's not far away - it's just along the River Walk, like so many of my favorite places.

I think the reason it is there is to draw you eye to it so you can take a picture and share it with all of us. So there!!
It looks good so lets hope they don't paint it. MB

To me....nothing can beat a seascape... There is something about the sand, the water AND the architecture.

My Ruby Tuesday is posted...scroll down below my CATS post. Hope to see that you came for a visit today if you found some time.

Happy day to you.

Neat. Hard to imagine the reason. Maybe it means something like the "red light district?"

The red color is most likely the thing that caught your eye.

Is that a shark fin on the water at the end of the red plank?!?!?

Do you guys have lots of Pacific lobsters?

This is a great Ruby Tuesday find!

Definitely says, "Stop! Are you sure you want to go there?"

I can see why this motivated you to get that camera clicking! The red board seems to be a mystery, but the water does take it's toll on buildings, pilings, even rocks...'tis a mighty force!

At least no one has carved their name in it yet.

Keep shooting those weathered buildings. I could do a whole blog on them (In fact maybe I will one of these days.) Being right by the water you'll never run out of subjects. Very nice shot Sheryl.
