Camden, SC. 32-degrees, raining, and B&W.

I was going to go on two photo shoots today, but I only went on one, since my friend never showed. There will be more Camden photos to come, this city has so much to

offer. I was bored in Camden, and still live there when not on campus here in Columbia. I went home for the weekend, which I normally do, since Camden is so close to

Columbia. It's just a short drive away. It was such a crappy day, I decided to make the photos black & white, and add a bit of color for artistic effect.

DOWNTOWN

It was raining, it never snowed, yet the signs are frozen over. Go figure.

This mural was done by Blue Sky, the same guy who has done murals in Columbia, Sumter, and many other SC cities and towns. He's done Busted Plug plaza in

Columbia (the giant fire hydrant sculpture) and Tunnel Vision.

Hard nipple cold. That sign rotates by the way.

I've never really paid attention to this building and am not sure what it is.

Signs like this are all over Camden, and tell about various historic sites.

Camden has several streets (Broad, Lyttleton, Fair, and Mill) which are very long, stright, and lined with very old trees, and big houses. This is the end of Lyttleton street.

A few shapshots of some large houses, which are commonplace all over Camden.

This little park is hidden in a secluded part of a wealthy neighborhood, nowhere near any major road. Basically follow some side streets, and then a dirt road, and then yoiu

come accross this park.

Camden is the steeplechase capital of the world. The Carolina Cup, which is a huge race which draws a huge crowd, has its offices and museum right down the street from

where I live.

And on the other side of the road is the entrance to Kirkover Hills, a very old neighborhood, and also where I live.

Signs like this are commonplace. This one is right near my house. I frequently have to stop for horses crossing the road as well.

A view of the cup tracks, with the (expensive) grandstands in the distance.

And finally, I return home.

This is a view of the Cup tracks from my backyard.

No photo shoots are complete without the obligatory cat shots that remain on my memory card. We all know Pinky.

And Whitey. This one is bad.

And to show you how bad the weather sucked, and still is sucking, this is the weather in downtown Columbia on my way back to the apartment here in Columbia. It's 32

degrees too.

Fantastic. I've never actually been to downtown Camden. I have been around the truck bypass before though :) It looks like a nice town. Thanks for sharing these photos. The random piece of color is a cool effect.
