Before this shot I got permission to be at this location VERY early, well before dawn.
The morning was SO humid and the darkness surrounding the live oaks was spectacular. A toad hopped up next to me on the side walk in the pitch black and scared me half to death.
Your mind wanders at a place like this. A place of such beauty, but shrouded in such darkness.
After getting my shots I left the plantation and went back to the hotel where my wife and kids were staying. We loaded up and went back to the plantation to do the tour and learn as much as we could about this location.
The story is incredible and walking through the slave quarters brought tears to my eyes. If you ever have the opportunity to learn about a place such as this, I encourage you to do so.
Due to the nature of digital photography and the fact that photographs, once sent, cannot be returned; Tyler King Art has a strict NO REFUNDS POLICY. Once a transaction has been completed (i.e., the buyer selected and paid for the photo and then Tyler King Art sent the buyer the correct photograph) it is then considered non-refundable. If a buyer has selected and purchased an incorrect photo, he/she must notify Tyler King Art, before receiving the “incorrect” photograph. Refunds will NOT be given due to “not liking a photo”, selecting an incorrect photo after the buyer has already received the photograph, or any other reason. If a mistaken photo is sent to the buyer, as documented on the invoice, Tyler King Art will send the correct photo to the buyer free of charge.
If the buyer purchases an original ink drawing it can be returned at the buyers expense. The buyer will be refunded only after inspection of the art and it determined that there has been no damage to the item.
