Atalaya Castle

As I looked through the photos I took of Atalaya Castle I realized I needed to show more of this incredible seaside home built in the 1930’s.  It was the winter home of industrialist and philanthropist Archer M. Huntington and his wife, the sculptor Anna Hyatt Huntington and was built in Murrells Inlet, Georgetown County, South Carolina with no building plans.

It is a 200 foot by 200 foot masonry structure built around a large open courtyard and watch tower.

Motion at Night

I recently joined the Cobb Photographic Society and they hold monthly competitions.  This next months topic is motion and during our recent trip to South Carolina I explored some more capabilities of my camera at night and using longer shutter speeds.  Some of these turned out quite well.

I Found Nemo in Myrtle Beach

During our recent visit to Myrtle Beach we made a stop at Ripley’s Aquarium for two reasons.  One it was a break from the heat and two, they have glass tunnels through a tank filled with sharks.

The Aquarium was small compared to Atlanta and Chattanooga and around the same price, however the glass enclosed tunnels makes it worthwhile.  Nothing like having sharks swim over your head.

And I found Nemo……..

Photos and more…..every picture has a story….
