Not only is this lizard catching some spring sunshine, but lots of Charleston County residents have bugged out of town for spring break to catch rays, visit with family and see other parts of the country. Photo by contributing photographer Michael Kaynard.
Michael Kaynard, Charleston: I didn’t grow up using tools, power or otherwise, and took up woodworking as my retirement hobby. As I got braver, I bought bigger and more dangerous pieces of equipment. One day as I was scanning Craigslist for tools, I saw a Ridgid 4510 heavy duty portable table saw. I bought it. I knew nothing about it and after using it found out I had a lot to learn. They are dangerous and sometimes boards can kick back at you. There is an anti-kickback pawl that the previous owner had removed. Duh.. How would I know?

Michael Kaynard, Charleston: “Over the past 18 months or so, our country has had to endure some of the most polarizing rhetoric in recent history.

It’s a big deal to many when a movie crew comes here to film, as is the case with recent activity downtown with the Marlon Wayans movie, “Naked.” It’s new. It’s different.
But people’s lives have to go on, in spite of everything associated with movie crews, which cause streets to be blocked, traffic to be rerouted and local businesses reliant on tourism to see smaller numbers of people in shops. Contributing photographer Michael Kaynard recently found parking spaces and lots full with film trucks and other vehicle.
Michael Kaynard, Charleston: “No one can say that this presidential race hasn’t been interesting. I believe most will agree that it has been one of the ugliest and most divisive political cycles in modern times. Decades ago, due to limitations in communications, the best way to reach large groups was through rallies and TV ads. Today with the Internet, one can reach huge numbers of people almost instantaneously. …”
