Guard Of Angels

An earthen mausoleum, ancient names called them barrows or burial mounds. Though this is certainly more ornate. Built by an old Charleston family going back to the original settlers from Barbados.

I’ve always thought this spot was perfect to be photographed using the old sepia colors and look.

Magnolia, Agfa Precisa 100 film filter

One those ‘found on a walk’ photographs.

A large Magnolia blossom. Not sure which type of Magnolia, but it is from the huge trees we have here.

To be different the image used a 35 mm Agfa Precisa 100 asa film filter. I don’t remember having used this film so I’m going to assume it’s close since most of the DxO film filters are considered accurate.

Joseph Manigault House, 1803, Charleston SC

When I work in B&W my first inclination is the old houses in Charleston. This house was completed only 20 years after the US Revolution. It shouts out ‘Money’.

The plantation economy created so much wealth some people in Charleston couldn’t spend enough. The manor houses competed with each other for attention.

Two things all the big homes had in common were intricate chandeliers and grand sweeping stair cases.
