Spanish moss hangs above a brick street
Savannah is a photographers delight -- a target-rich environment. These first few photos were taken during a nighttime stroll around a few of the streets north of the river, near our lodgings. No flash, just a basic 50mm f/1.8 lens, camera set up for black and white...
The United Methodist Church
Savannah is a church town -- 19th century houses of worship abound and steeples rule the skyline. After dark the religious facades produce a gothic effect -- especially in black and white, then smoothed a bit in post-processing...
I spent a good deal of time, both day and night, shooting Savannah doorways. Many of these will be used in the cover art for my new CD "1,000 Doors" (assuming I eventually finish the thing!).
An Arched Doorway
There is character at every turn in Savannah... the full set of our night walk photos are here. More photos in the days to come -- from Savannah (including Bonaventure Cemetery), Thomas Jefferson's Monticello (my political and philosophical hero), the mountains of West Virginia, and an Ohio storybook wedding... Thanks for coming along for the ride!
