A large home and light pollution over Beresford Creek

Beresford Creek Lights

Some days there just aren’t enough hours to fit everything in.  I ran out of day and hadn’t taken a photograph yet.  So I walked down my road to the landing on Beresford Creek and got a couple of frames.  I would have stopped at one, but the lights from this house across the creek on Daniel Island were so bright that I had to go all the way to -2EV to bring them anywhere near exposed.  The purple/blue highlights in the bottom windows were clearly more than one TV.  I can’t imagine the electricity bill for that place!

Another Rainbow Row house detail.

Flamingo

Here is a second day’s image from Rainbow Row here in Charleston.  Today I changed perspective by moving down to a 24mm lens.  I also tried taking some images in landscape orientation, but that is really not what I’m looking for.  I think the 24mm includes entirely too much space in the frame for the mood I’m looking for.  I’m hoping for something more intimate….the one detail that makes the particular house unique.  Today’s photo is not helped at all by the harsh mid-day sun with the dark shadows and washed out color.  Yesterday didn’t have enough light.  Today provided way too much.  This row gets the warm glow of sunrise and that is going to be the best time.  I’ll try again later this weekend perhaps.

Ready for the new season!

Seasoning

Tradd Street in old Charleston is one of the oldest and most historic streets in the Americas.  I love the old houses with their weathered patina and traditional Charleston details.  Oh the stories these houses could tell!

Snow in Charleston, SC!

Snow!

Tonight’s photograph will not impress the nor’easterners out there who have had more than their fair share of snow lately.  But snow in Charleston, SC is a BIG DEAL.  I can guarantee you this is the first time this house has seen snow!  It’s 9:00 and my two young sons are begging to head outside and have snowball fights.  I can already hear renewed arguments from them to move back to Quantico, VA so that they can have snow every year!

Sigh…

Pouring a cup of hot chocolate….
