Signs in Bluffton, South Carolina

By Pattyhankins @PattyHankins

I’ve been trying to figure out how to organize and share some of my photos from my March trip to South Carolina and Georgia. On the trip, I photographing in a style that isn’t my usual style – I just wandered around towns and cities photographing whatever caught my eye. This was great fun – but the photos don’t really fit into my usual blog post about a type of flowers format. So I’ve just decided to edit up the ones I want to – and share them here on my blog – in grouping that seem to make sense to me. Given the number of photos I took on the trip – my guess is I’ll be sharing lots of photos from the trip for a long time to come . . .

Today I’m sharing some photos from Bluffton, South Carolina. I spent a wonderful morning wandering around Bluffton photographed. Located about 30 miles north of Savannah, Bluffton has a one-mile square historic district full of fascinating houses and shops. Adjacent to the historic area is a small shopping area full of stores and restaurants that continue the charm of the historic district.

One of the things I found myself photographing was the signs on the stores and restaurants. I don’t think there was a chain restaurant or store in area of town I was photographing in – so every sign I saw was new and different. Here are a few of the signs I photographed in Bluffton, SC

Have a Heart, Buy Local Art sign taped in the window of a closed art gallery.
