Last week I traveled through the southern cities of Savannah and Charleston with my sister. She is also a photographer so we share a bond. We literally shot our way through Charleston weighted down with gear and on our feet for hours walking at least eight miles. We found Tradd St. to be the most picturesque street in the historic area. It is a narrow street with closely spaced and brightly colored historic homes. Almost all the homes have flower boxes. Often we would find painters set up with easels painting subjects that we also were photographing. My sister and I would sometimes get separated as she found an interesting flower box and I would find an long, narrow brick-lined alley. Our eyes led us to different places but our passion has led us the same place.
On our last day in Charleston, we went to Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. The weather in May is hot, but not too uncomfortable. We walked around the lakes, gardens and trails lined with flowers for several hours. At the end of the trail we found this beautiful scene and stopped to photograph it. We were both exhausted and took a moment to relax. I shot this scene as a way to remember our time together. The title of the photograph is simply “Sisters”
