Street Photography is increasingly becoming one of my favorite pastimes and my location of choice for this series is Market Common.
I love the mixture of low country spacing and southern metropolitan architecture. The mixture of people this time of year is very nice too. Right before the troves of folks come in for spring break and summer breaks loose, there is about a 3-4 week period where the weather is gorgeous and the only people here to enjoy it are snowbirds who have spent their winter here and us locals. This is my favorite time to enjoy Myrtle Beach because everyone is out of hiding and the town looks halfway populated. Sure it takes a little longer to get to work but it's worth it to actually see people!
With such a small boutique style shopping and residential area, you have richer feeling on the Grand Strand instead of the beach stores and head shops competing to see who can be the most stereotypical on the boulevard. There are nice fountains and walkways, brick streets, large chess boards and all types of places to just enjoy your day. Unlike most places in Myrtle Beach, The Market Common really understands that "Going Out Of Business" and "nothing over $10.99" banners are not what sells people on returning. They offer a wonderful experience and are giving it away; it doesn't cost a thing to stroll through the most beautiful area in Myrtle Beach.
Enjoy The Photos!
