Contributing photographer Michael Kaynard snapped this photo of a tulip tree in the foreground of the Statehouse during a visit to Columbia this week.

FEEDBACK:  A glimmer of hope

FEEDBACK: A glimmer of hope

Michael Kaynard, Charleston: “Over the past 18 months or so, our country has had to endure some of the most polarizing rhetoric in recent history. I have tortured myself by listening to an overload of trash talk that resulted in the election of Donald Trump as our next president. There has been a great deal of anguish over this result and many seem to have lost hope.”

You might not realize it, but the gates at the famous Sword Gate House on Legare Street in Charleston is one set of a matched pair. Seems that way back, the city of Charleston hired ironmaker Christopher Werner to make a “pair” of gates for the city’s new police station.

PHOTO: Shrimping

You can almost hear this white shrimp screaming “Oh, noooo” as it is about to become lunch for this egret that was fishing this week along the tidal banks of the Ashley River in downtown Charleston. It’s been a good year for shrimp if you haven’t yet tasted this season’s delicacies. Photo by Michael Kaynard, Kaynard Photography.

PHOTO: Casting a big net

While the major political parties are spending a frantic weekend casting big nets to get voters to the polls on Tuesday, these folks seemed to have something far better — and more rewarding — in mind: A little fishing on the Pitt Street bridge in Mount Pleasant. Thanks to Hurricane Matthew, big, fat shrimp have been blown inland into our marshes, which is resulting in bountiful harvests for local sportsmen. Photo by Michael Kaynard, Kaynard Photography.
