As I shift from the 365 Project to "regular" photography I realize how many images I have failed to share with all of you. There are so many stories to tell. It seems fitting that I start where I left off in Savannah, GA 2018. It was a short trip with the primary purpose of finishing and processing the 365 Project.
Savannah is an interesting city. It is rich with history and fascinating architecture. River street is right along the Savannah River, which you have to clamber down steep steps to get to from street level. From there the city is structured around 24 historical squares and very interesting "round abouts" that are a far cry from round. It's got that southern feel, but not nearly as flat in architecture as Gainesville is.
As soon as we arrived it was straight to the monument for the 365 Project Epilogue. You can read more about it here. Once I felt I had a sufficient number of images to work with we made our way to Cafe M for a macchiato and split sandwich. Cafe M became our go to place on both trips with its tasty French cuisine. We enjoyed our coffee and tea while I sat in a daze. Amazed that we had finally made it. In awe that the project was actually over.
As we walked back to the car after dinner at a.lure I brought out the camera equipped with a simple 50mm prime. I went with my smallest of lenses for its light weight and ease for navigating the streets at night. The lighting was too perfect with sunset approaching. The sky was a violet blue with speckles of white wisps of clouds. We caught a purple orange sunset from the balcony at Vic's.
We then decided on a night time stroll down River Street. I enjoyed experimenting with the low light and freighter ships passing down the river. It was almost surreal to watch a rather large ship coming down from the north in the night. It was so large and so quiet. No huge disturbance in the water. Just an ever increasing ominous presence from the bow.
It was a wonderful evening to say the least. A great way to celebrate 31 years and the end of an epic yearlong journey. Below is a slideshow of some other images I took on Day 1. More images from this trip to come. Did you see an image you like from this trip? Have any questions about process or inspiration? Leave your feedback in the comments below.
