Rising From The Pond, Three Artsy Views

This dead tree trunk with its roots sticking up was laid out in a pond where a dike made a sharp turn giving me different options for angles and reflections.

The first view shows off the “spines” made of the tree limbs and green reflections from a tree line, making the whole thing look like a prehistoric monster.

From a bit further on the spines are hidden, there was no background reflection and I got the impression of antlers.

From the far side, reeds at the edge of the pond came into play and the shifting clouds made an interesting reflection.

Taffeta, Lace and Sparkle

The front window of this bridal shop on Church Street in Charleston is always filled with luxurious wedding wear, but is difficult to photograph. Glare, reflections of cars parked across the street,  and folks passing by are detractors.

Fortunately for those wanting a more intimate peek¬† of it’s offerings (yes, me!) the shop has taken marketing advantage of its windows on the side street.

The gowns are elegant even on a headless, limbless dress form.

An entire rack of taffeta, lace and sparkle draws my eye and the bridal march is playing in my head.
