Dock Street Theatre and Spoleto

Pictured above is the Dock Street Theatre bathed by the warm light of early morning. This weekend is the last weekend of Charleston's Spoleto Festival USA, and this historic theatre is a featured venue of the famous international arts festival. Events this weekend include a presentation by Ireland's Druid Theatre of their play "The Cripple of Inishmaan", an opera by Spoleto founder Gian Carlo Menotti called "The Medium" and several Chamber Music concerts. These concerts are favorites of festival goers, and will include works by Beethoven, Schubert, Paganini, and Farrenc.

Today's Favorite Photographer Friday selection is another fabulous National Geographic photographer, Michael Yamashita.   Mr. Yamashita has an uncanny ability to capture exceptional light and atmosphere in his travel images, mostly from Asia. You can see samples of his images on his official website. He has a fascinating photo blog as well.

Thank you very much for all your visits and kind comments!
Hope you have a nice weekend!
