Walking, shooting….and thinking

These photos were taken while walking around Charleston, South Carolina on one rainy day. There’s  something about being in a different city that puts me in tourist mode instead of photographer mode.

Branching out

Not much to say tonight but I wanted to throw this image up and see how it looks. Just playing around with something different. One can only do spring blossom photos so many ways without wanting to experiment!
