Ogden Railings


This pictures shows the new railings on the Ogden Point breakwater in Victoria BC. As mentioned in other recent posts, I can see why these are good for a lot of users. But, for a photographer they really ruin the wonderful clean line that existed before the railings.

You can compare to how it was in the series I did a year ago before the railings were put in, and in particular this image.






I will be separated from my computer for the weekend, and may have intermittent access to another one. If not, then I will be back in action on Monday and will reply then to any comments you care to leave.

    • Thanks Andy, it is a fantastic view and when one is out for a walk, the view is what we all look at, so the railings won’t really be a problem.


  1. It’s easy to see why the railings are necessary and they really did a very nice job with the installation. But aesthetically, i agree with you that they do break up a nice clean line. I like the final shot showing the curve in the railing with the city in the background.


    • Thanks Ken. I am sure I will get used to it very quickly. And I should try for some shots that emphasize the shiny new railings as they are likely to become dull pretty soon, with all the salt spray.
