Many years ago I was walking down a street in Charleston with a very long time resident. When I mentioned I had never noticed a certain detail on a house before she said that there wasn’t a day that went by when she didn’t see something she had never noticed before. Depending on the time of day or direction you are walking, going by the same spot in Charleston can feel significantly different.
Having walked, biked or driven by this gate on Tradd Street many times before, I had never noticed the wonderful shadow cast by the beautiful ironwork. This time with the sun at the right angle, I was in the right spot and a little bit of magic occurred.
