The African American cemetery at Drayton Hall West Ashley, SC
This graveyard is the resting place for many of the African Americans who lived and worked at Drayton Hall. The last burial took place in 1998 and was that of Richmond Bowens, a descendant of enslaved people at Drayton Hall and one of the National Trust’s richest resources on African American history. In keeping with his wishes, this cemetery has been “left natural,” not restored or planted with grass or decorative shrubs. His words, “Leave ‘em rest,” appear on the iron gate at the entrance.

The Arthur J. Ravenel, Jr. Bridge
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.
