Timelessness

St. Michael's Reflection in City Hall Window, Charleston, SC
 © Doug Hickok  All Rights Reserved



At Charleston's "Four Corners of Law", a symbol of God's Law (St. Michael's Church) is reflected in the window of a symbol of Man's Law (City Hall). The image has an ageless aspect... it could represent the modern era or 150 years ago when Charleston was at the epicenter of the American Civil War. Or even further back during its antebellum times. This sense of timelessness is augmented by the ghostly appearance of the city's iconic colonial church in the window.

  12. aw, come on, doug, admit it ... you copied the steeple into the window ;-))
    seriously, though, this is a terrific take of two beautiful buildings showing off their charms ...
    (thanks for teaching me a new phrase i'd never heard or read before - the caterpillar's kimono! i'm going to use it from now on myself ... ;-))

    I just had a few sips...
    Now, I am seeing doubles.
    Double steeple, double lamp! ;o)
