Charleston, SC, Street Scenes

The City Market in downtown Charleston.
Here in Charleston, South Carolina, it's hard not to find inspiration as a writer; I can only imagine what this city looks like through the eyes of a great photographer or painter. Even though I've got a lot to learn about photography and the editing thereof, here are some pictures from our stroll, and carriage ride, around town.

Read on for more pics.

Take a horse-drawn carriage ride with one of the carriage outfitters like Carolina Polo & Carriage Tours.

Cobblestone and brick paved streets are everywhere.

I've always loved the roof lines and shapes of these chimneys, many of which
date back to the 1800s (and some even earlier). 
Also known as the Holy City, Charleston, doesn't want for churches.

Belgian Gelato has this killer truck (and some great gelato).
A crooked, but charming, little house and sundries shop.
As dusk fell, the crescent moon and palms looked like the state flag.

Lit like this, the church becomes a beacon downtown.

From the street we heard this fountain. Peering through the ivy-covered gate we saw it,
 shining and brilliant in the garden's dark.
