Hometown Shootout -- what am I?

It has been a busy week but fortunately, this shoot is really a one shot shoot.  I suppose I could do a lot of what am I's.   I do, after all wonder what I am more often than not.  Talking heads singing in my brain again, "This is not my beautiful house?  This is not my beautiful wife?  How did I get here?" 

Probably not quite the right lyrics but rather than look it up, I'm taking the lazy way out and just posting the picture I took this week.  I kept thinking about close-ups or details and then just decided to go with something unique about my hometown. 


I'm not sure if I should give the answer at the bottom of the post...I guess not because then people would know before they left comments.

Besides, I really have to do a little bit of research to make the answer more than just "a batch of..." Woops!  Almost gave it away. 

I think I'll go play around with other people's puzzle shots.   I may not get the answer done until Sunday.   I could say that I'm waiting until Sunday so the suspense will build but actually I'm just buying time for myself.

  1. okay if I say this twice - just delete one - your comments spit me out again!

    This looks a lot like the cattle pens in the stock yards in Fort Worth Texas. where the cattle were kept before shipping and being butcherd or is it Butcherd then shipped - don't know.... I do know why they are in FW TX, but why would they be in SC?

  2. I think some sort of pens for holding stock, I think I can see where there was once a gate but some in the background look like they are elevated so that doesn't make sense. I have a feeling it's something to do with a battle, am going away to think more along that line. May be back.

  4. Oh!Oh!Oh!
    I was just in Mt Pleasant this summer (sorry to not look you up, but it was a whirlwind tour crammed tight), and the private docks out on the tidal marsh were just too, too picturesque.
    But... that ground looks way too solid. and these particular docks are too broken down. How about Ex-privateboatdocks in a part of the marsh that's been developed and doesn't get water any more. Except when it floods.

  5. Pauline elevated would make sense if the poor beasties were being run up onto a truck.... couse NanU seems to have a point also.... but were did the water go?

  14. Old broken down chutes that used to hold broncos or bulls for the riders to mount before being released into the rodeo ring?
