So today was a little slow, nothing that had to be done with any urgency and nowhere that we needed to be, so Leigh took the clippers to her brother's head, and this was the result. Entertaining and ultimately an improvement I think.

One thing about living in Charleston is that there is never a lack of material to photograph. When feeling uninspired, the antidote is to wander through the city and take in the details. Like a treasure hunt, there is something special wherever you look. Here are just a few more Charleston cameos.

I wear multiple hats where I work, like many I'm sure, but the other day I got to climb the scaffolding to the steeple of St. Matthew's Lutheran Church on King Street where we have been involved in a restoration project. I was there for the purpose of documenting work that we are doing, but it was a lot of fun, and the views - ahh!

I spent a great Saturday out at Boone Hall where a re-enactment of the Battle of Fort Wagner took place. It was to commemorate the 150th anniversary of this historic event, the Union attack on July 18, 1863, led by the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, one of the first major American military units made up of black soldiers. Colonel Robert Gould Shaw led the 54th Massachusetts on foot while they charged, and was killed in the assault. You can find many more images on my website here.

I went downtown today with one of our environmental engineers to document some of the work we are doing at St. Matthew's Lutheran Church. The building is currently being renovated inside and out to fix multiple problems, but it was a fascinating look at some of the inner parts of the building that one would not normally have the opportunity to access.

We had been waiting for awhile for conditions to be right for an aerial waterfront property shoot, and Sunday was just perfect. A clear, clear day, sunny skies and a nice high tide. As soon as we are airborne I start shooting - at anything pretty much. Why not? It doesn't cost anything and you just never know when an image might come in handy. Here are some taken of downtown Charleston.

A departure from landscapes ... This evening I had the responsibility and privilege of babysitting for my daughter and son-in-law and so one of the things I did to pass the time was to put her on the lawn on a blanket and photograph her - of course. The wind was blowing quite strongly and she loved the sensation. She is truly a precious gift.
