I love to use images such as the first here as an article header. No matter what it’s an attention grabber.
The photographs were also finished in a matte type process, adds a bit more atmosphere.
A dirt road runs along the back of old Magnolia Cemetery, Charleston. Marshlands encroach it on one side, some old mausoleums sit on the other.
Most entrances are either iron gates, or heavy doors long gone. In one an open, and empty grave, is at the entrance. Not good to just walk in here.
Some are 100% occupied. The names here you will find on several Charleston streets.
They are beautiful in the way rust and ruin can add character.
This is one of the first places I tell photographers new to the area to visit. It’s a step back in time.
