Savannah: The City
We explored the night scene on day 1, and textures and banana peel entryways on day 2, but what about the actual city of Savannah? Believe it or not I took some "normal" shots of the city. Elements that caught my eye compositionally. More mundane subject matter than rotting banana peels on visually striking title or peeling facades.
There is a gritty elegance to this southern charm of a destination. It has some major tourist spots, some of which were downright gross in my opinion, and yet there is refinement and culture too. Maybe it's the architecture. Maybe it's the oak trees that seem to balance the whole thing out with their quiet fortitude. Maybe it's all the history that has taken place, both the good and the bad. Or perhaps it's the slow pace of things in the summer heat.
I can't say exactly what "it" is about Savannah. What I can say is I had the good fortune of being incredibly inspired by a small piece of it. I had no idea the Veterans Memorial existed prior to my first trip. Even people who live there aren't aware of it. Yet my feet put me on the right path at the right moment last year. That is a beautiful thing. I feel grateful for the entire experience, grateful to have the opportunity to share it with all of you.
