Photo Challenge – Lens-Artists: Artificial Light

Our challenge this week is to share photos of artificial light. Ann-Christine’s choice of a prompt was chosen as she realized that we in the Northern Hemisphere are moving away from the sun and would need more artificial light soon. I went searching in my files and found several ideas but settled on photos of the artificial lights at the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Broadway at the Beach. And then I decided to present them in black and white.

The board walk is at the heart of the downtown area and is lit up most of the year. The sky wheel is a big attraction at the boardwalk. After 10 years of service, it was dismantled in January and sent for renovations and upgrades. It should be ready for the 2022 tourist season. It’s over 200 feet high and enclosed with glass which makes it a great spot for photography.

The three photos above and the one below were taken at Broadway at the Beach. It was December, wet and chilly. I only saw a few people out but the ferris wheel was still running.

In the photo below, you can see what the locals call “the upside down house”. Rumor has it that this building was once a top-secret laboratory located in the Bermuda Triangle. An experiment didn’t go as planned, lifted the building and carried it to Myrtle Beach where it landed upside down. I’ve also heard that it was a hurricane that brought it here. It’s a science/entertainment site and the little ones will enjoy it. We took our oldest grandson there years ago and the other three will be old enough and tall enough soon for a visit there.

Beautiful Beach Weather

It’s unlikely a visit to the beach today would disappoint.

Warbird Park

warbird-park-9

The Myrtle Beach Air Force Base closed in March 1993.  Since then it has reinvented itself into Market Commons – a development which includes single family homes, condominiums, a beautiful retail area including restaurants, bars and a movie theatre.  It also has a first class recreation center for youth.  At the front entrance is Warbird Park dedicated to the military personnel stationed there.
