Travel- Sheldon Church Ruins


Please be kind with your comments guys…I am still trying to learn this world of HDR and still retain the realism of the shot. This is a compilation of five exposures to try and keep the highlights in balance and the details in the shadows. This image was shot at the Sheldon Church Ruins on the way to Beaufort, SC. This area is marked as a Historical Site..but, that little old site marker is the ONLY thing marking the lcoation of the beautiful area. It is said that many, many weddings are held here and there is a phone number available to reserve this site for such events.
Doesn’t just looking at this make ya want to take a sip of some fine Mint Julip or some Sweeeet ice Teeea? lolol..lucky for me a had some sweet ice tea, ’cause is was sure hot out there! I do have to give credit to those grand shade trees though, VERY comforting sitting in thier shade with that southern breeze blowing though….

24 cents a gallon….remember when?
There I was just driving along a back road when there it was, an old gas station with an original gas pump still in it’s place, and the per gallon price was frozen at 24 cents per gallon. I have the color version available on my website as well.

Color or black and white? I could not decide, so I will be posting both of them. There was just too much debris (late model cars and parts) around this old classic. My apologies for the digital blanket around the gem (I am NOT a photoshop artist), I hope it is not too distracting from my classy subject!

The Grill….

Rusty, old, classic and decaying. All terms that came to my mind when I first began to study this old rusty car grill and front end. Then, as I began to photograph, I began to wonder…what events in history had these headlights illuminated? tradgedy? joy? pain? maybe simply an open road? Had this been the front end of a moonshine runner? Artifacts and history…unknown, undiscovered, and stories we will never know. One thing remain certain, that at one time, this was state of the art, and a peice of someone’s history, pride, and joy. Now, after it’s usefulness has run it’s course, once again it is valuable, sought after, in high demand by those looking to preserve the history, restore the classics and artifacts of heritage and progress. For me it is a comforting reminder that just because we grow old, our eyes and minds may begin to fail us…but the history of our lives, the experiences we have had, the art we create, while not as spectacular or shiny as we once were, are all treasures to be enjoyed by those with whom we choose.

Just taking a walk down memory lane…
Travelling along Route 66 in Texas, I found this old restored fuel station, today as I ramble through some of my images I began reflecting. Things are not and never will be what they used to be “back in the good ole days”, so making the most of the present is really beginning to bloom in my life.
I hope you all enjoy the image!

Location: Route 66, Texas, USA

Model Portfolio


You never know just you will find in those old backyard garages, barns, and fields in South Carolina! Just a sample of some of my model photography. I do love my style of “Country Glamor”, I hope both the ladies and gentlemen out there will too.
Phoebe is a young model who wanted to add some country glamor to her portfolio, with a slight hint of Pin Up style.
Equipment used: Nikon D300, Nikkor 70-200 2.8 VR lens and a large white reflector for fill light.
