I love the way it almost seems as if the panorama transitions from evening to night.

Broken Silence  Art by Charles Williams
Charles Williams is a native of Georgetown, about a forty minute drive from Charleston, and most of his paintings depict the Carolina lowcountry.  His work is really beautiful.  
An artist who is often featured at the Robert Lange art gallery at 2 Queen Street.  My favorite gallery in the city, and my favorite local artist as well.

Red Dot StoreAwendaw, SC 
From the Richland County Public Library:


It is believed to have its origin in the South Carolina Constitution of 1895, article 8, section 11, which prohibited alcohol sales between sundown and sun-up. The red ball designates the sun and identifies the store as one that sells alcohol. The State newspaper, 10/03/1984, gave the following theory:
In the 1940s, the state was forcing liquor stores to shrink their signs dramatically, so as not to advertise alcohol too blatantly. Stores were allowed to use lettering only a few inches high on doors or windows. A Charleston liquor store “highlighted” the tiny lettering with a dramatic red dot, and everyone else followed suit.
