The Post Office

I have wanted to photograph this building for a long time. Rural South Carolina in the ACE Basin. The area has been called ‘One Of The Last Great Places’ in many magazine and news articles. This is where the wild marshlands exist, for thousands of years.

The post office here has such character I finished the image with a high contrast black and white.

 

Swallowtail

Recently someone mentioned the specific type of Swallowtail this was… sorry, but not recent enough. No clue what type now.

Carriage House, Old Carriages, A Gallery

The colors and details of these carriages just make for great photographs. I placed them in a gallery because it is easier to view them as a group.

Visit To A Local Blacksmith

A visit to a time gone by. I have photographed here before yet every time I shoot it’s different.

There was no work being done. At the time of this article there is a tariff on steel. It seems steel cost more, for far less, right now so places like this are working part time.

This building is small, no it’s really small. The photographs show almost the entire width. Even with no fire, this place is hot.
