Thursday Doors: Seeing red in Charleston

In continuing with my Charleston theme, I have compiled a few beautiful Thursday Doors that have quite a lot in common.  They all:

  • have a pointed arch
  • are painted a stunning red color
  • belong to the same church

I did a little digging and found that many Episcopal and Lutheran churches have red doors.  The red color is a symbol of “the blood of Christ” which seems fitting for Easter coming up.  There is something about these red doors that just draws you in.  We walked past these doors every time, and each time I stopped to pay homage to their beauty and what they represent.

Fantastic Folly Beach in Charleston, SC

My hubby and I recently took a weekend trip to Charleston, SC.  We wanted to get a taste of some real southern charm!  We always do a little research and make a list of activities we would like to do on a trip.  However, we also like to leave free time for us to stumble upon some local favorites that we could not have planned.  Our best memories often come from the items that were not on our to-do list.  TIP: Don’t over plan!  Enjoy exploring!

This is how we found Folly Beach!  It was freezing in Charleston that weekend (lucky us!) so we went to Walmart to get some warmer clothes.  Then, we headed to Folly Beach, which was close by.  It is only about 20 minutes from downtown Charleston and totally worth the trip.

Oddball Photo Challenge: Bookin’ it

I stumbled upon this interesting sight while walking the streets of Charleston.  I know everyone has a favorite item to tote around, but this is certainly a stack above the rest.   I think whoever owns this bike better “book it” to their next destination or they might lose a few good men (and women).

Thursday Doors- The Gates of Charleston

Last week my Thursday Doors were all about the beauty of arches.  This week we are walking through the gateways of Charleston.

Many of the homes in Charleston have gates.  Some lead to luscious gardens, while others open to cute little entryways for meeting guests.  Of course, leave it to Charleston to leave no detail of their architecture untouched.  Each gate is so lovely, intricate, and unique.  Southern charm at its finest!

Thursday Doors: The arches of Charleston

Charleston, SC is a photographer’s heaven.  Every house is completely unique, from the sweet tea porches, to the beautiful Victorian accents, to the bright Caribbean paint colors.  And don’t even get me started on the doors…Doors and doors galore!

I have so many pictures of doors from Charleston.  In order to keep things somewhat organized, I am trying to group them into similar features.  Although, frankly some just stand alone in their beauty.

These Thursday Doors all have similar “arch”itecture.  Enjoy!
