The Battery – Part 1

I visited my daughter in Charleston this past weekend and we spent some time walking the battery and taking photos.

The Battery is a seawall used to defend Charleston during the Civil War.  Where cannon still stand, both tourists and locals can be seen every day enjoying the park.

 

The Bridge at Dusk

I walked part of the Arthur Ravenell Jr Bridge the other day with two of my daughters but this time at dusk.  I walked it once before with one of my daughters and you can see that post here

It was extremely windy so we didn’t stay as long as I would have liked but I still got lots of fantastic shots.  Watching the sun set and seeing the lights on the bridge start to come on was beautiful and getting to spend time with my daughters – well, it was an awesome day!

I’ve posted pictures of the bridge twice before in Photo Challenges.  They are here and here.

Photo Challenge – Weight(less)

Weight(less)

This week’s challenge is to share a photo of something marked by its weight — or its air of weightlessness. Show gravity at its most unforgiving, or most generous. Bricks or feathers. A collapsed ruin or a plane taking off. A heavy piece of old furniture or the flying buttresses of a cathedral. Keep in mind that weight doesn’t even have to be physical: emotions and memories can weigh on us (or lift our spirits) at least as much as real objects.
