Japanese Art and Design
Whenever I visit Charleston, I always love going through Market Street because you never know what you are going to see. Some of the vendors really have some amazing and unique items to display. This older lady was selling nice handmade Japanese products and took the time to explain the delicacy and craftsmanship of the design of her products. She was kind enough to let grab of a few shots of her beautiful Japanese umbrellas and fans with my Leica X1. The art and design of them made me think of the unique culture of which these umbrellas and fans are used in, as well as how they are highly appreciated forms of art in Japan.
