The senses of the Pier

Uploaded by sweetbebe on Nov 16, 2003

Right now I find myself on the pier-bridge surrounded by loud sounds of many different birds. Their sound mixes with the far noise of the people who are walking nearby and talking.

When it rains, most of us see water falling down from the clouds, but actually, water is nature's work of many raindrops that glance through the endless light that surrounds us. Many different smells reveal different places. We can feel the cigarettes in corridors and smell of cocktails in bars, and even chestnuts in the streets and dust in crevices.
