Charleston Kaleidoscope - 2

I was a day ago walking around with my camera in the picturesque lanes of Charleston's Down Town. It was probably for the last time and I took the chance to say a quiet "Good Bye" to all the lovely and pretty places, before we will be leaving this wonderful town.


I don't like to go away from here because I know, I will miss all this beauty of the Southern lifestyle and hospitality!


I will miss also all the historical places and corners, all the big and impressive houses and the stories behind!


I will miss also all the pretty small houses, hidden away in private backyards!


And I will miss also all the many beautiful galleries where we spent many hours looking to the great art of artists from and about "The Lowcountry" here in South Carolina. Yes, Charleston is magic, Charleston is beautiful and Charleston will have always a special place in my heart!


There will be more "Good Bye" photos posted in the next days, stay with me!

Charleston IS a beautiful city and you have done a great job of capturing that beauty in your photos.

While it may be trite to say, "You will have beautiful photos to help preserve beautiful memories." Right?

It has been many years since I was in Charleston, but I remember it as a very lovely city. I love the photos, especially the first.

Your words sum up your feelings beautifully.

Oh, thank you so much Richies! But there will be then also a lot of new photos form other, exciting places coming, I promise! :)

Susanne49 said...

Thank you Sue! Yes you're right, I can always come back to my own archives and have a look to remember.

Beautiful images Susanne, will miss them but there will always be another place and another time to take your great shots.

Debo Hobo said...

Are these recent photos? There are still leaves on the trees? Does it not get cold over there?

Hi Swiss Charles,

Susanne49 said...

Thanks for the comment, DeboHobo! Here in the South we have no snow at all, it can be cold, but never too much, that's why is nature here different.:)

Sleec Photos said...

Ja, man spürt selbst hier in der kalten Schweiz die kommenden Veränderungen bei euch!
Dieses Charleston und Umgebung reizt schon für einen Besuch.
Die Fotos sind übrigens sehr stimmungsvoll und gefallen mir sehr gut.
Liebe Grüsse

Susanne49 said...

Hallo Peter,
vielen Dank fuer deinen netten Kommentar. Ich hoffe die Erwartungen auf DIE Veraenderungen hier in USA sind nicht zu hochgeschraubt, bei Euch in der CH. :)

Charleston lohnt sich immer fuer einen Besuch,im Fruehling, wenn ales blueht und gruent, ist es aber am Schoensten hier!

Have great traveling.

Super congrats on the book. :D

Dakota Bear said...

Thank you for the pictures of Charleston. I have never been there, so I was surprised to see the houses painted in beautiful colors. It reminded of the buildings in Rome near the Spanish Steps.

I look forward to your pictures taken in other locations.
