Outside Charleston, in Mt. Pleasant, SC, is Boone Hall Plantation & Gardens, founded in 1681 by Englishman Major John Boone on the banks of Wampacheone Creek. Marking the approach to "America's Most Photographed Plantation," is a natural corridor formed by moss-draped live oaks, which were planted by the son of Major Boone in 1743. In 1955, the McRae Family purchased the property, which they still own, and the house was furnished with antiques by Mrs. McRae who began giving tours. Crops, such as strawberries, pumpkins, tomatoes, and other fruits and vegetables are still grown by Boone Hall Farms. I captured this image of a rustic cotton gin on an overcast, cloudy December afternoon, which rendered a bit of moody lighting as a backdrop to the structure's mixture of color variations and textures within the bricks and wooden supports.
