Thanks Frank, Dave & Michael, for your encouraging words!

I'm really thankful that it was not as bad as it first looked, when it all happened.
And that really delicate parts were not damaged, like the fire escape and my sail boat weather vane on the sail factory.
So in a sense, I was really lucky!

Greg

Ted, you were right! It does look all better now.
Well tonight was the night, that I finally got to take some photos of Magoun pier, and without any disasters happening.
I set up at around 5pm, with the help of my neighbor Ted once again.
By the time I had everything ready to go it was already starting to get dark.
So this first batch of pics still have the last bits of sunshine before it went down below the horizon.
I hope you enjoy them, I went to a lot of work to get them!
Here is my Halloween treat for you.
































As it got darker I continued to shoot more, I will let you see those a bit later.
Here is a overview of the pier, as it's getting darker out.
Those streaks of bright lights, are cars passing in the background.

Greg, it is difficult to keep reminding oneself, that you are looking at a model and not a real life water front pier'. BEAUTIFUL photography, and excellently executed shots. Very nicely done!*. Thanks for going back to grindstone and starting over'. Your work is loved by many on this forum. And I enjoy admiring it'...

Greg, I feel quite honored having witnessed this wonderful build from the start. You are one of the
great masters in this absorbing hobby. Hope to be around long enough to see your future layout come
to life.

Thanks! Very much, Pete, Ted, John & Brad.

Pete, you of all, know how long I've been waiting to get this outside to photograph.
So glad I finally did it!

Ted, it's a honor for me, to have you enjoy my work!

John, you are the great master! Not me!
One day, I hope to have a layout as beautiful as yours is right now.
Nobody has ever made a video, of any of my modelling work.
I hope we are both around to see more of my layout get built.

Brad, your only speechless, because you have your mouth full of Halloween candy.


Here is another scene of the pier at dusk.

Spectacular Greg! Congratulations on a successful shoot!

How did you power your lights at the outdoor location? Car inverter?

WOW, OUTSTANDING, both the model and the photography. Greg, you know that I have enjoyed
this entire build and those photos put a wonderful finishing touch on it. I am also happy and honored
that the SANTOS is a small part of it

You can be justly proud of having created a work of art my friend.

Bob

Supercalifragilisticexpialidociously awesome and magnificent! I may have to blow some of my models off their bases to try to partially duplicate your work and photography! All the shots are great - I especially like the atmosphere of the very first one!

Greg,

That's a terrific sequence of photos, full of atmosphere. Really shows off your superb modeling.

I'm glad you were able to put Humpty Dumpty together again.

Mike

Good Morning! Dave, Carl, Bob, Bill & Michael, and thank you for all of your nice postings!

Dave, I'm happy to read that you enjoyed my Halloween treat!

Carl, I have a little portable power supply that I use to power the lights.
It gives you about an hour of portable power, then you plug it in to recharge.

Bob, the R.A.SANTOS was the reason I built this pier in the first place.
So it played a very big role in the creation of this whole thing!
I still have a few things to, and I still need to get Mallerich's Magic shop lit and Nilsson's Sail factory. So I'm not quite finished with it yet.

Bill, no need to blow your models off their bases. I've seen your work and it's just fine the way it is!

Mike, I think it's the real light and sky, that really help make a model scene like this one more believable looking in the photos.
I'm really glad I was able to get the broken pieces back together again as well!

Here is one of the photos that I have showed you already, but this time in B&W.
I think it adds another level of realism.





Thanks again everyone!

Greg
