A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words


It's time for another (nearly) wordless post.  :)  These pictures were taken in the French Quarter of historic downtown Charleston, South Carolina. 


I love this elegant hitching post,



and this row of colorful shutters.

Historic Charleston is a photographer's dream -- loaded with beautiful and unusual details everywhere you look.  It's an open, sunny, and friendly city, and it's full of history.  The old cemeteries and shaded courtyard gardens give Charleston a mysterious feel, as well. 

Sharing this post with Maggie of Normandy Life, along with the other talented bloggers at her "Mosaic Monday" link party.  Hope you'll stop by Maggie's blog and take a look at some of the lovely mosaics.  Thank you for visiting and for your kind comments.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Denise, you had me with the first photo of the black wrought iron - a favourite of mine for landscaping to add a more formal look to my gardens.
    I can see where this would be a photographer's dream, mine for sure.

  2. It looks absolutely stunning, Denise. I'd love to see it. Charleston always makes me think of the dance - of course - but more particularly, Rhett Butler!

  3. What a fun trip this would be. I love the French Quarter in New Orleans, so I know I would love Charleston. The window boxes are just gorgeous. My favorite photo is the green trimmed entryway. Did you buy one of those cute spice grinders?
    Have a wonderful weekend, Denise.

  5. Good photos! I was thinking one could do a photo book just on the fences of Charleston, especially black wrought iron! Have a good weekend! Hope you got some rain as we did.

  13. It's been quite a few years since I last visited Charleston so you can imagine how much I enjoyed strolling around that beautiful city with you today. I want to live in that amazing house at 26 State Street!
    So glad you joined us for MM this week.

  14. It has been a long time since I visited Charleston, but I have never forgotten how enchanted I was by the city. I remember taking a beautiful carriage ride through the old streets and just wandering on foot, amazed at all the beautifully preserved houses. Thanks for the lovely view of a wonderful city.
