Heat, Kudzu. Old Buildings and Inspiration, Another Ride
Al and I took a ride out to Pacolet, SC and found what we were looking for, namely. old buildings and kudzu. The inspirational graffito on the corner of an old building was a bonus.

Al and I hit the road again and found this old cotton mill which is slowly being repurposed.
If we get far enough out of town the rewards of older working farms are great. I enjoy the colors of some of the subjects as well as the farm implements.

Biltmore Library Restaurant
The Biltmore Estate has several dining places and I think the views from the Library are the best, starting with the table and going out the window.

Wandering the streets of any town or city yields some interesting images, which is what makes photography so much fun.

Old Buildings in Upstate SC
Our area of SC is rich with old commercial buildings and houses. They have a certain nobility and exude history.
