Abandoned: Gold Mine Pawn Shop

I found this abandoned pawn shop building near Shaw Air Force Base in Sumter, South Carolina.  The beautifully weathered paint and metal surfaces really caught my eye.

Ravenel Bridge Compositions, Part 1

The Arthur Ravenel Bridge in Charleston, South Carolina is the third longest cable-stayed bridge in the Western Hemisphere.  Completed in 2005, it’s main span of 1,545 ft (471 meters) crosses the Cooper River entrance into Charleston Harbor.  While considered a marvel of modern engineering, the beautiful and scale of its sculpturesque architectural symmetry is often viewed as a work of art.
