Charleston Weekend

Rusty & I visited Charleston, SC with our friends, the Girtons, this weekend.  What a beautiful city!  It is the second largest historically preserved city in the world…second to Rome.  Can you believe that?  I could have walked around and looked at the beautiful homes and landscaping for days.  Here is a shot of Rusty and I at the Russell House:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Charleston is a peninsula, so at certain points in the city, you can look forward, right and left and see the water.  It was weird to look down three different streets and be able to see so far…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I took some cool texture photos while we were aboard the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown…that is what you see in the previous photo and this next one:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And this is my favorite shot so far.  I haven’t gone thru to edit everything, but this one is it so far:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I actually did the least amount of photoshop on this one…just a big bump of contrast.  I love the blue in the window, and the texture of the brick.

Thanks to Graham & Dawn for putting up with us and doing all our touristy stuff, and for not totally ditching me and my blistery, bleeding feet.  Love you guys…
