A Face in the Theater

Wood Carving Detail, Dock Street Theater, Charleston, SC

This is an image I made during a photo shoot a few years ago at the Dock Street Theater when it was under renovation. You can see parts of the original carving have been replaced with putty. It was eventually painted and made to look like new. Renovations of historic buildings like the Dock Street Theater are seemingly endless in Charleston, a city packed full of 18th and 19th century structures.

  2. Great close-up of the wood carving and its impressive antique feel. The side light brought out the texture really well.

  4. Beautiful details. I love the colouring too. I never saw the putty until I read your description. It just looked very rustic. I assume it looks perfect now.
