Reader photos: You showed us “Outdoor Art,” now let’s see “Authentic Charleston Food”

From Richard Hernandez of Goose Creek: Bike mobile at North Charleston Waterfront Park.

We asked you for photos with the theme of “Outdoor Art” and boy, did you get the concept. We received 24 entries. Four of them were photos taken at North Charleston’s Riverfront Park, which is on the grounds of the former Naval Base Charleston.

That the park inspires so many photographers with its outdoor art is a testament to the creativity of its architects and planners, and the city of North Charleston.

Three of the entries were of the park’s bicycle carousel sculpture and our editors selected one of those, the one by Richard Hernandez of Goose Creek, as this week’s winner. Editors said they were drawn to the photograph’s composition, its form and symmetry.

All of the entries were fun to look at. Thank you to all who entered.

In anticipation of the Charleston Wine + Food Festival, which gets started next Wednesday, send us your best shots of whatever this theme conjures up in your mind.

- Send just one (1) photograph to by noon on Thursday, March 3. Include your name, town and where the photo was taken. If you send us multiple photos we will select one randomly.

- 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 top pick each week will be featured in the Sunday Arts & Culture section and selected picks will appear on The Post and Courier Facebook page.
