Doing research for May 2019 #exhibition@halsey_institute in Charleston. Toured McLeod Plantation which offered a more realistic and unromantic perspective of plantation life from the enslaved. Stately view of the main house framed by majestic trees and Spanish moss, contrasted by tiny slave quarters dotting the avenue that leads to the main house; learning about some of the individuals who lived on the property.

Did you know the city was walled and used to be called #CharlesTown ? The #ProvostDungeon used to house a secret supply of gunpowder from British invaders amoung its many uses. Wild how they used handmade bricks to create this architecture #TheOldExchange
Here's a rare photo of my Grandpa Tom not in the Bay Area, but touring Los Angeles and making a stop at Griffith Observatory. Looking sharp as always, I'm grateful to have his stories and convictions as a continuous source of inspiration. See you tomorrow at @giantrobotstore at 3:00PM with @robsato!
