PHOTO: Weathered red

When contributing photographer Michael Kaynard sent along this close-up shot of the hood of an Ford F-250 truck, we immediately knew it would be a featured photo in Charleston Currents. The photo, taken on a recent trip to Fernandina Beach, Fla. (see Mystery Photo), evokes feelings of quality craftsmanship and classic styling. Thanks, Michael!

PHOTO ESSAY:  The wreathes of Charleston

PHOTO ESSAY: The wreathes of Charleston

Contributing photographer Michael Kaynard has been hoofing it around the peninsula in recent days finding lots of pretty and neat holiday wreathes on local doors.

You’ll see a lot of greenery, but every now and then you’ll find something a little different — a cast bird wrapped in holiday finery or pieces of copper bent into the shape of a wreath. In addition to driving around and looking at lights this holiday season, take a look at the ingenuity that people put into the wreathes on their doors.

We thought we’d offer you a look through his lens in this photo essay.

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.

KAYNARD: A great way to end Thanksgiving

By Michael Kaynard, contributing photographer | One of the most important things about my being a photographer has been when people enjoy my work, and seeing the happiness it brings. The money has never been as important.

Now that my selling days are quickly coming to a close, I received one of the nicest compliments about my work.

PHOTO ESSAY:  A visit to Amish country

PHOTO ESSAY: A visit to Amish country

By Michael Kaynard, contributing photographer | Our impression of the area and the people was very positive. We found the Amish and Mennonites we met to be hard-working and very nice people. We would enjoy returning there again.

As a matter of fact, we thought southern Pennsylvania was very pretty and lush. I would suggest that travelers get off the interstate and main roads and see the real America.
