On a very windy (and cold) winter evening, I ventured out to Folly Beach. The beach is a short drive from Charleston, South Carolina. It was a beautiful evening. As the sun sunk on the horizon, shadows changed shape and color against the sand.
I only brought my medium format film camera so changing rolls was tough with my frozen fingers. It was worth the struggle though. There were small steams leading to shallow pools on the beach. The wind made ripples on the surface. Not only that, it pushed the sand around scattered shells. The result is little sand podiums supporting the seashells.
Some of the shells made it to the Folly Beach “Wishing Tree.” The tree is full of shells, some with writing, representing visitor’s wishes. Other beach goers used the wind to their advantage. They brought kites that entered the sky as it turned from blue to pink, and pink to black.
