Photo Walking

There are a few places on earth where you don't dare not bring a camera. Downtown Charleston is one of them.

Ghosts of Christmas Past

Yesterday, I led my nephew Douglas and his girlfriend Adrianne on a JanetLee style Charleston tour. (On Broad Street, I pointed out the South of Broad/North of Broad divide, at John Calhoun's mansion, I described him as "sort of the Newt Gingrich of his time".) Most likely not approved of by the visitor's board.

Anyway, we were walking up Church Street when I spotted this anchor. I snapped a quick picture and told Doug and Adrianne, "I think I took a picture of that exact same anchor back when I was a teenager."

And sure enough, I was right. The date on the back is stamped 1978, but I think it was in late 1977 when I took it. That was back in the days of mailing off your film to be developed.

Insanity. In a Good Way

This is why I so love my Confederacy of Geeks. Who else would hook me up with this little bit of insanity?
