Your hidden gems weren’t lost on us; now we want your funny moments

By Chuck Hooker: The boneyard beach, Botany Bay Plantation at sunrise.

Charleston is so full of prominent landmarks that sometimes we don’t have time to stop and notice the beauty of some of the lesser known sights.

This week we asked you to find some of these hidden gems and you came through. Ultimately our editors chose Chuck Hooker’s photo from Botany Bay Plantation. Read the People section in Saturday’s newspaper to find out why our editors chose that one.

Next week’s assignment: Your funny moments.

Note: We are making one important adjustment to the rules for now. We will allow photographs with reasonable watermarks to run in the gallery but for the winning photo that runs in the newspaper we must have a photo that does not have a watermark. If you want to send us one with the watermark (to run online) and one without (to possibly run in the newspaper) please feel free.

The other rules remain the same: Send one (1) photograph to by noon on Tuesday, Oct. 15. Include your name, town and where the photo was taken.

If you want your photo to be eligible to run in the newspaper, it must be at least 1,500 pixels. Our editors will select which photo will appear each week. We reserve the right to not publish any photo for any reason.
