Throughout the Lowcountry old wrought iron is found everywhere. From both a historical and artistic point of view it is one of the things Charleston is known for.

Charleston iron work (Philip Simmonds in particular)  is displayed in the US Smithsonian Institute as well as Paris, France.

The old cemeteries are filled with iron fences and monuments.

These photographs were taken in the old Magnolia Cemetery and Unitarian Church grave yard in the week or so.

    1. I live across the street from Trinity Church Cemetery. I have been photographing there for years. Lots of Santeria rituals take place there.

    2. I know the Cemetery having lived on 76th and Broadway for years. It was a Sunday walk in the summer when everyone else had run out to the Hamptons. The best time to be in the city, IMHO. 😁. Never photographed there sorry to say.
