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.

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.
