Charleston Cross

This was taken on a street in Charleston, South Carolina, one year ago.  He was walking with a purpose.  I really wanted to talk to him.

Have a happy Easter if you celebrate it.

I guess he will be out on the walk this year too:)
GOD PÅSKE / HAPPY EASTER!

Was he going to join a religious procession, I wonder I suppose it was Good Friday. I have always been fascinated by the Penitentes in the Southwest, but now the practice seems to have been practiced and/or spread to many different areas.

Happy Easter or Passover to you and to your friends and loved ones!

PS. With his beard I wonder also if he had the role of Jesus?!

What a capture, Jack!

Christ is probably thinking, "Why didn't I or one of my disciples think of putting wheels on the cross?"

The invention of the wheel...

I would have told him to let it go, someone needs the wood.

I've never really understood the theology of this kind of thing...people walk across the country hauling a cross. I can't see what that accomplishes, except for a very sore back and worn out shoes! :-)

Super capture Jack!

For a split second I thought he had blood on the tee-shirt and thought nope, that can't be... Happy Easter to you and yours Jack!

Don't think the original had wheels or a shoulder pad. That misses the spirit somehow. Great picture, however.

The wheels made me smile - but sensible I guess. Our local churches had a march of witness on Good Friday but what with decorating and a heavy cold I gave it all a miss this year.

Sharon said...

I would have wanted to talk to him too! Nice capture.

Carrying his cross with the help of wheels! Happy Easter Jack.

Valerie said...

A very symbolic capture Jack - wheels and shoulder pad aside. Thanks for sharing. Wishing you a blessed Easter.

Michelle said...

At least it has wheels.

This cross doesn't look too difficult to bear! Hope you had a happy Easter.

Halcyon said...

I like the idea of a cross on wheels. This gave me a laugh! :)

Now that's a sight you would only see at Easter, and maybe even then not so often. Great capture Jack. Hope you had a wonderful Easter also.

The wheels totally make this picture for me. Terrific find. Quick reaction on your part to grab your camera and shoot.

Wonderful capture... was he preaching the gospel?

Some people are just weird.
