Out with the old, in with the new

Smith St., Charleston, S.C.
Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a good New Year's eve. I had an early and delicious dinner out at Muse Restaurant with a group of friends. We were in, out and home before any craziness started up. I watched the new year coming in from the comfort of my couch.

While we were at the restaurant we looked out the window to the hotel across the street and noticed a bride and groom standing outside the hotel. They were both formally dressed in bridal-wear but were alone. At first I assumed they had escaped wedding festivities to have a private moment but the couple headed our way, into the restaurant and sat at the table next to us. Just the two of them at dinner at a table set for two. They asked their server to take a picture with their cell phone. What an interesting way to get married.

I did a walk downtown today to see if any of the stores decided to give anything away for free. Apparently not. I found today's photo on Smith St.

No complicated New Year's resolutions here but on reflection, throwing out my old socks and buying some new ones might be in order. Happy New year kids!

I think that's the late, great Dr. Hunter S. Thompson! Good to see him again.

Of course it is! I didn't even make the connection. I shoot and run. Thanks Catalyst!
