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.

Charleston Fiddler

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.

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

Losing Bones

With each new storm the lowcountry is losing. The beaches, dunes, marshes, and our bone yards.

There is good news, 200 year old trees have been washed up in new locations. Not as large, or accessible, but it’s a good sign.

 

Where’s The Water ?

The most famous, and photographed, spot in Charleston went down after Hurricane Irma. I saw no damage so I’m sure it was just in need of a cleaning.

The Charleston fountains are kept incredibly clean, children are encouraged to climb in and play in all the fountains.
