A Day In Savannah

Savannah was Georgia’s first city, settled back in 1733. It seems the city holds tightly to this title because I’ve never seen a place so devoted to its history. The downtown area is still the way the city’s founder James Oglethorpe designed it 284 years ago. A lot of the structures, homes, and churches have survived the test of time making this city one of a kind. Being the history nerd that I am I relished that I was able to somewhat go back in time in Savannah. My pictures barely scratched the surface of the city’s classic beauty, its something you’ll have to see for yourself.

A Hazy Shade Of Winter

When snow falls, nature listens. — Antoinette van Kleef

Optimistic

It doesn’t snow much in the south so you’ve got to take advantage when you can. I took a little nature walk today and basked in the dusting we got today. Here’s a few shots along with some great quotes about snow. I’m no pro but sometimes I like to pretend to be a photographer 😉
