…and there I was, just me and my camera, listening to Al Greene’s “Still in Love With You” being piped out via several large speakers at the Lowcountry 30th Annual Oyster Boil that was held at a sprawling and gorgeous Boone Hall Plantation, when I looked out towards the cotton field and saw this lovely couple. Yep, Moments in Time like these are priceless!
To answer those of you asking…

Someone once said that some days are like coal, and some days..are like diamonds. Some times your the windshield and some times your the bug…Today was a one of those days when I just wasn’t feeling very inspired until a friend of mine called me up and aasked me to go to the Lowcountry 30th Annual Oyster Boil in Mount Pleasant, SC.
I met several wonderful people, Mike and I shot tons of images, this couple was actually posing for thier friends to take a picture of them with thier “point and shoot” camera (may have been an iPhone). Luckily I had my telephoto and grabbed a few shots. If they email me, I will be glad to share these images with them! I hope everyone enjoys some of the images in my new Gallery “Moments in Time”. No telling what I will be posting in there, but it looks like I have taken on a new project…Street photography with a southern twist on it.
So tell me, do YOU remember??
The smell of Armor All the fear that gas might actually go up to a DOLLAR a gallon?? The smell of burning rubber, the sound of Thrush and Glaspak roaring, The smell of her perfume, the excitement in her eyes when you shifted gears, the unmistakable sensation of all those wild horses under the hood…shoving you back against the seat…
I still remember how nervous I was when I picked her up for our first date…I could barely get the key back in the ignition…what do you remember? One of the reasons I go as often as I can to car shows is to talk with some of the people who remember those “good ole days”, and all the wonderful funny and sometime tragic stories they tell. And the hilarious antics that went on both at the drive in theatre…and at the local Sonic or drive in. Such a magical wonderful time in those high school days, the Friday night football games, the cruising…..
