So the usual – get up at three thirty in the morning, drive to the airport bus, take the bus to Logan Airport, fly two hours to Charleston, hassle at the car rental (the old bait and switch), drive to hotel (kinda bait and switch again). But I am not a bitter person. OK, well maybe just a little. I have been accused of having a glass empty view of the world. So finally around two in the afternoon we arrive at the King Street Mellow Mushroom for well a pretty good lunch.
I am itching to get out and take some pictures, when the chandeliers above the two front tables catch my eye – my favorite abstractions white tone on tones. So now there’s this weird guy at the front of the restaurant taking pictures of the lighting. People are tolerant in the American South! Taken with my Canon T2i with my EF70-200mm f/4L USM using IS 1/60th second at f/13.0 ISO=800.This was not my expected first photograph in Charleston. But, the result is Figure 1, which I entitle Picasso’s Minotaur – hopefully for obvious reasons.
