Contrasts


Magazine St., Charleston, S.C.

This is an door in the old Charleston Jail on Magazine St. The rooms on the first floor are being used as offices for the American College of the Building Arts. For some reason they must have though the original lock didn't offer enough security.

We have welcome sunshine today after that downpour yesterday. I was driving into town just as the rain hit and it was too late to change my route before I was caught up in the flooded mess on Cannon St. I turned into the Burger King just in time and hung out with the rest of the soggy refugees until the water went down enough to get through. Close call!
