Walked Into A Treasure (1)

The first of a series, a surprise treasure. I walked through the door and into a time machine, an elegant one at that.

This is the Charleston Town Hall, Council Chambers. A meeting room / art gallery.

I had no idea there were this many portraits here. Even an incredibly rare John Trumbull (Revolutionary War) of George Washington.

Charleston has been the a city of wealth and history since the 1600’s. This chamber is a ‘who’s who’ of the towns historical figures.

I have additional images to continue this article, this being the first.

I suggest you view the photograph full screen, the chambers were overwhelming.

Several photographs here where choosing to pull back on a zoom lens worked out well. It’s not like you have a lot of time to make the decision, so not all come out as planned.

These images used the empty (negative) space to place all the focus on the bird.

For me the danger of doing this is pulling back too far and finding the great looking bird is only a tiny speck in the photograph. I speak for experience… 😀
