Flag, Charleston, USA

Charleston, SC 2000

I have the feeling, this could become one of those “When I was young…” posts! I took this picture almost 20 years ago, when I used to live in the US.

In the Summer, on a Friday afternoon, I would race home from work, to find a friend already waiting outside, engine running ready to drive to Charleston- or sometimes Wilmington for the weekend. And off we would go… a long drive, I think quite often we would pause in Augusta for coffee and doughnuts. A really long drive, with nothing but the radio (we all had rubbish cars back then), but it was what we did.

Technical Details. I took with with a very worn Olympus OM2n and a 50mm f1.8 lens on Kodachrome 64. I really like the colours in this picture and the contrast between the red and white with the blue sky (didn’t Paul Simon sing about Kodachrome blue skies?).
