PHOTO: One at a time

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.

MYSTERY:  This one will be tough

MYSTERY: This one will be tough

We’re betting none of our readers have actually seen this building, but maybe the computer wizards will be able to figure out where it is using Internet smarts. Two clues: First, it’s not in South Carolina. Second, it’s not associated with Red Roof Inns (the expert searchers might understand this.)

Send your best guess to: editor@charlestoncurrents.com — and make sure to include the name of the town in which you live. There might even be a special prize for this one.

PHOTO: Deep orange: Smoke on the water

Guess who the only folks to get any kind of benefit from all of the smoke that has blown into the area from mountain wildfires? Photographers. The particulates in the air have created deep reds and oranges that excite the lenses of professional and amateur photographers, as highlighted by this shot taken from the Pitt Street Bridge in Mount Pleasant by past contributor Leigh Sabine of Mount Pleasant. Thanks for sending the shot, Leigh!
