Even with all the places around town to walk I usually at some point find myself in, or near, the French Quarter.
Anglin Smith always makes an interesting image, the gallery offerings and of course the building.
There are still plenty of cobble stone streets. A small factoid; many of the cobble stones used were from the sailing ships in port. The stones were ballast and as the cargo was loaded, the stones were removed.
The building here with the brick red shutters has historical importance. For the life of me I can’t remember it right now LOL.
Mid-week, late fall or winter, is a great time to just wander the side streets. Fewer people to photo bomb the images.
I can never do justice to this cemetery, especially with the subtle fall colors there.
It can be difficult to read some of the headstones given their age. I have found many names I recognize as the founders of the Charleston settlements.
All around the cemetery, even after you emerge from the alley, are old historical buildings. In the distance you can see the newer parts of town but even that doesn’t change the atmosphere here. You always feel enclosed, inside something old.
