Out with their ‘bud’.
This church is probably the second most photographed spot in Charleston, the fountains are #1 by far.
The congregation was organized in 1681. That’s 95 years before the USA was founded. The original meetinghouse gave Charlestons Meeting Street it’s name.

This photograph was taken from the Circular Church. Charleston is called the ‘Holy City’ due to the large number of churches and spires that make up the skyline.
In this case the churches are back to back, for centuries. Their old cemeteries separate only be a small, half size, wrought iron fence. Between them a large majority of the US founders are buried.
They are very big birds, but head on so thin they are hard to see. Unless one is flying, full speed, right at you. And obviously on purpose I should add.
So fast and thin keeping focus was very difficult. Besides I could hear him coming. Obviously I stood there taking shots, like him I had no place else to go either.
Finally he reached to opening in the canopy and banked away.
I knew he wanted to get down the enclosed path to the open marsh before I cut him off. But there had to be other options.
Like the rest of us have sometimes ‘it was a good idea at the time’ moment. We all have them.
He was playing traditional fiddle music, and was ‘real good’.
The music is actually from old Irish and English folk songs. I even knew them (from another life).
This day the gentleman was entertaining on the Charleston waterfront. In the wind from looming hurricane Irma.
Not much more we need to know.

Photographers have always loved windows. Add the character and color of Charleston and you have the perfect reason to walk around town.

Charleston is known for it’s galleries, this one is a favorite. I do love this ship and have photographed it various times of night and day.

The ‘Colorful Charleston’ articles are something we publish on-going. There is rarely a shortage of photographs.
