Howdy. We've moved from Cayce, but St. Elizabeth of South Rose Hill or Lizette de Waccamaw de Sud just don't do it for me.

Riverwalking

Last night, whilst Izzy & several friends went to go see folks deal with (violate?) the Decalogue, I decided to go back to the Riverwalk to take pictures. It's been really low lately, and I thought I might be able to get some nice shots of the rocks.

Turns out, all that damp, exposed riverbed was too much temptation! I quickly abandoned the paved trail, and I ended up traipsing around the bridge area for about 90 minutes near dusk. I decided to do what I could photographically strictly with natural light - I'm overall pleased with what I was able to capture.

Had I had (1) better shoes and (2) someone to call 911 if I fell and cracked my head, I would have made the attempt to walk all the way across to Columbia from Cayce.
