This week, we spent a few days in Charleston, SC, one of our favorite cities. What a joy it is to explore around the historic district, south of Broad Street. It didn’t hurt that we had fabulous weather, including a balmy high of 75 degrees one day – not bad for mid-December!
These images were taken with my Nikon Z6 mirrorless camera, with a 24-70mm lens. This amazing camera is perfect for street photography – it is light, focuses quickly and takes beautifully sharp pictures.
Some of these images are just architectural details, while others show complete buildings. I simply responded to what was in front of me -especially strong graphical elements – and grabbed pictures that caught my attention.
I’m always amazed with how well maintained all the buildings are in Charleston, many of them dating back to the 1700’s. This is a very special city that plays an important role in our nation’s history.
Fort Sumter is just visible on the horizon, on the left side of this photograph.
The colors of the buildings, the trees and the sky were just spectacular. Most of these pictures “right out of the camera,” with no color adjustments added in Photoshop.
I’d love to hear from you what you think of these pictures or any stories you might have of your own time in Charleston.
