Teri Levin from Daniel Island

A nice relaxed portrait that came about after seeing how Ms. Levin stood and viewed her first set of proofs. I suggested, and she agreed that we try to capture something a little more casual.

Summerville Town Hall Annex Construction

One of my new "favorite places" in Summerville: the top level of our new parking garage. From here I can photograph the construction of the Town Hall Annex, or look at and appreciate the Summerville skyline.

A Touch of Fall in Summerville

Baer & I went to Azalea Park on Sunday afternoon to let him do some exploring. While he sniffed and snorted, I found these plants and trees showing off their fall wardrobe.

What do you do on Thanksgiving day at 6:30 in the morning? Well for me, I sit on the back porch and take photos of the sunrise and jets taking off.

Look! Up in the sky................

The above photo is of what I call a "Russian C-5". It is actually a Russian made Antonov A-125, but looks like and sounds like a Lockheed C-5 Galaxy. This plane flies in and out of Charleston on a regular basis.

Summerville Parking Garage Opens

It just seems proper that Mayor Berlin G. Meyers would be the first person to "officially" park in Summerville's new parking garage.

Don, Mel & Co. LLC at Riverfront Park

After seven years I finally saw Don Brewer and Mel Schacher's version of Grand Funk Railroad. First of all, great band but.............they sorely miss Mark Farner. This band had no charisma, no energy. Don Brewer, excellent. Mel Schacher, excellent. But guys....move around a little. Bruce Kulick, an excellent musician, but he lacks (there's that word again) charisma. Max Carl should stick to singing 38 Special songs, because he can't even approach the voice that made so many Grand Funk songs, Grand Funk. He, along with the rest of the band did show, in my opinion, great respect, when they performed, Grand Funk's greatest song, "I'm Your Captain". They played it as it should have been played, but again, they miss the vocals, the guitar, and the on stage presence of Mark Farner. Mark, Don and Mel, are the true and ONLY Grand Funk Railroad.

Boeing 747 Dreamlifter

While driving from breakfast to a North Area department store, we saw a 747 Dreamlifter preparing to takeoff. I shot these photos while Lynn held on to the steering wheel.

Greater Charleston Naval Base Memorial

And again!

I spent the last three days feeling really under the weather, but the weather was so nice Saturday, I just had to get a helicopter ride and shoot some aerials of the Coastal Carolina Fair. As you can see from the above photos, they really do cram everything so close together. The sky was clear with no haze to speak of. Just a perfect day for shooting aerials.
