The last two weeks I’ve been sharing images from our trip to South Carolina earlier in the year, and I wanted to round out the series this week with one final image. It’s rare that I come away with a trip with so many images that I’m excited about, and rarer still when all those images came from a single morning! I believe I mentioned the first week that I told myself afterwards that I wish I had spent more time down in the historic section of Charleston, but it really would have made my job harder of selecting which images to share had I done that! That’s always a good problem to have though.
In any case, I wanted to end the series with this image of the Williams Mansion. What caught my eye about this particular scene were the massive trees growing up on the street in front of the house, and then the whimsical looking bushes just behind the fence. The way infrared turns green things white really gave the trees and bushes an almost Dr. Seuss look to them, which I really liked as I was looking through the view finder. This is, of course, to say nothing of how gorgeous the house is itself! Speaking of the house, construction started on the 24,000 square foot house it 1875 and completed in 1876. The owner, George W. Williams, lived there until he died in 1903. The house served as a hotel for a number of years and changed hands a few times until more recently when it was converted into a museum.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this series on some of the historic buildings in Charleston, South Carolina. I’m still trying to decide what direction to go next week, so be ready for anything! 🙂 Have a great week!
