I have always been fascinated by the seemingly simplistic beauty of classic Chinese paintings of mountains, covered with snow and off in the far distance. Every time I take a walk on Port Maitland pier I am reminded of these paintings. The decades old pier is in need of significant repair as the combined action of wind driven salt water, acid rain, air pollution and natural decay cause the concrete to break down. Many vertical surfaces have started to leach chemicals as the concrete breaks down, leaving visual images like this one. Destructive beauty.
