Photographer's Note

This interesting-looking pink house is not very typical of architecture in Charleston, but it does catch the eye. Beyond the color, it looks as though it's grown without any architectural input. Note how the two gable ends on the top are differently decorated, and the odd pyramid at the right. But even so, I thought it was rather pretty.

You can barely see in this image that the ceilings of all the porches are painted blue. This arises from a Gullah superstition that evil spirits cannot cross water, and blue paint is close enough, thus keeping the evil spirits out of the house. You see this, and very close to this shade of blue, all over the city.
