Downtown Kershaw Abandoned Building Study

While recently traveling the back roads of the South Carolina Midlands, I took time to explore the downtown area of Kershaw. You can bet older small towns, off the beaten path, will usually have some interesting old or abandoned structures to photograph. Along E Marion St., I found a string of cool abandoned brick buildings to capture.

    1. Definitely Marcus, you certainly have the “art of see” and technical acumen! For me, there is a strong sense of wabi-sabi with the photographic study of old and abandoned spaces – an appreciation of the wisdom gained as a result of the passing of time, and the cool textures from weathered wood, rust and patina surfaces.

  1. I love these studies, CS. The brick and mortar composition is so pleasing. The green abandoned building image is interesting with the outside inside. 🙂 Terrific work, all. One of the things I loved about living in SC were the small towns as you drove inland. Wishing you a wonderful new year!

    1. Thanks, that first one is my fav too! I’ve done pretty well with locally juried shows, not so much nationally. Think I figured out a reason, I haven’t taken time to put very thoughtful descriptions in my national submissions. I now understand the description is like “setting the table for” or “introducing” your work. Thank you for the encouragement!
