Old Terminal

Old Port Passenger Terminal, Charleston, SC  © Doug Hickok
(Click on image for larger view.)



This view of the old passenger terminal at the port shows rusty metal siding that has weathered over the years. Below the pedestrian catwalk is the grass of the salt marsh in summer green. Due
 to the booming cruise ship business in Charleston, this building will come down when the new cruise ship passenger terminal begins construction.

  10. What dazzling tones and textures that wall has. And the combination with the contrasting colours of the walkway and green, below, make this all add up to be a fabulous image. So well seen and presented, Doug!

  13. What a great image! I like how the green grass brings out the texture and tones of the rust even more. Incorporating the lamp post in your framing gives some sense of perspective - fantastic work!
