Random Sights, Charleston Area, South Carolina, USA

This discrete brass placard is, without a doubt, among the classiest and most polite choice of words I've ever seen. In the north, our sign would say in six-inch high red letters: "KEEP OUT - NO TRESPASSING."  But southern gentility takes a much better approach to accomplish the same thing: "Beyond this point, by invitation only."

Gulls and sunset are often a successful photographic combination. The ghosting and multiple imaging is a result of the HDR function built into my camera - in high contrast situations, the software captures three images in rapid succession and sandwiches them together to create a better final photo. It can produce some interesting results if there is a lot of movement in the picture - like flapping gulls.

A slice of life - in youth, a surfer; in mid-life, a man with a dog; and in old age, a couple - it seems a universal feeling to enjoy the beach, especially near the time of sunset when the golden glow brightens smiles and makes people friendlier.

More gulls at sunset.
