DC and McGee, boyhood friends, were photographed by Perry Williams more than 40 years ago under the crabapple tree at the old Greer High School.
Williams photographed "Just More to Love" during a recent trip to Honduras.
Williams titled this photo of an infant in a hammock "A Dreamer".
The signature photo of downtown Greer at the corner of Trade and Poinsett.
Williams, a commissioner on the Greer Commission of Public Works, entrepreneur and professor at Clemson University, all but swept the Greer Juried Arts photography contest judged last month. He finished 1-2-3 in “Greer Goes Global” and 1-2 in “Greer – An Upstate Destination”.
The classic photo of DC and McGee, boyhood friends who were adopted favorite sons of Greer by people in all walks of life, dates back 40 years, Williams said.
“I’m still not finished with those guys,” Williams said. “The crabapple tree that they are sitting under at the old Greer High School is emblazoned with names and initials carved into the limbs.”
Williams’s entries of photographed children in Honduras, on a recent visit, are black and white because, he said, “I enjoy processing the negatives, but often don’t get around to making enlargements for a while.”
A wide view of downtown was printed for the first time last month.
