I wonder who lived here.  I’m always wondering about the subjects I find myself shooting.  There’s such an abundance of remnants of things that were once used in a very different way than they are now.  I suppose it can simply be idle chatter of the mind; wistful fantasies played out amidst present day realities.  But, I like my fantasies.  There aren’t many who would venture building a house like this these days.  No vineyards.  No crops of any kind near any more.  This sits in the middle of Magnolia Plantation near Charleston, South Carolina.  I wonder what they planted.  I wonder who lived here.

I love a good swamp.  Maybe because I didn’t grow up with them.  I just love the growth in them; creepy, slimy, often stagnant, algae invested still water.  And the trees, so often covered with Spanish moss, crawling and extending its life down, down, down, seemingly reaching out toward the water.  Magnolia Plantation here, is quite close to Charleston, South Carolina and a fun place to hike around and explore, if you like a good swamp.

One of the features I like best about the South are the swamps; wet, moist, mossy, thick, green, sometimes a bit eerie.  It’s probably due to the fact that they’re not found in the west and thus they’re different, unique.  Whatever the reason, the ones we went to in South Carolina and Georgia were great; perfect for walking and finding photo ops.  This one is at Magnolia Plantation near Charleston, South Carolina.
