Can you smell it ?
A single flower, in a place no one expects, has been found and photographed by any number of photographers.
I don’t know how long it balanced over the water. It is gone now but immortalized on line.
Funny how a glance can catch attention that way.
Photograph of an old garden pond with the early spring flowers in bloom.
On the porch steps of a grand mansion along the Charleston water front.
Taking short cuts through the alley’s of Charleston almost always provides interesting photo ops.
Many of them serve as the main entrance to local homes, all have a big dose of history…and charm.
I have walked through here many times yet my photographs are rarely the same.
I love walking around town this time of year.
This image, in B&W, was completed with a filter to simulate Ilford 100 Delta 35 mm film. Most of what I shoot is ‘busy’. What I consider to have too much going on around the man subject for black and white.
This film type pushes the contrasts and can compensate for my clutter.
Now… this idea of busy and clutter is mine, and probably more a photographers style than anything else. But that said, I still reject most photos because of ‘the clutter thing’ LOL
Can’t help it.
I’m sure there’s a story here but I don’t know it.
At the time I had no clue what this was, or represented. I still don’t, just a theory. It could be the top of an old statue.
It is not military (the civil war section is seen in the background), more like a Greek urn.
Next visit I will try to give a close look.
It must have been interesting since I took the time to set the shot. Looks boring and dull now.
