Savannah!

I stopped in Savannah for the second night on the way to Florida.


There was going to be a "Light the Night" walk when it got dark.
A group from a dentist's office gathered before the walk.


I decided to get a meal at a nearby pub before the walk started.


Karen and I were walking in the same direction.  She is a retired ballerina and her sister is a photographer, so she was happy to pose for me near a blank wall with a nice iron grill.


A student at Savannah College of Art and Design was doing some intense computer work.


I can't keep my eyes (or camera) off the beautiful wrought iron railings.


Finally, it was dark enough for the walk, a fund-raiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Capturing photographs of moving people carrying lighted torches in the dark is 
WAY beyond my skill level, but I gave it a try. 

I will be in Naples tomorrow night!

Now, are we going to get some compare and contrast shots between Naples, Italy and Naples, Florida? I wonder.

You sure do get around, Jack!

You made good use of your time, Jack. Savannah is an easy city to photograph because of the squares, other sights and friendly people. I, too, love all the wrought iron decorations.

The people from the dental office have big, white smiles.

I REALLY must see Savannah. Promised myself many times but just haven't made it yet. Savannah and Charleston will happen.

Savannah is an excellent pitstop on the way to Florida. I love your shot of of the railings. It looks great in B & W. Sunny 82 degrees in Sarasota. Drive safely….no clicking and driving!

The portrait of Karen in particular is quite striking!

Hello Jack,
These are beautiful pictures. That one with the student working in the computer reminds me my daughter! I also love the stair image!
Wishing you a lovely day,
Leia

I was in Savannah exactly 35 years ago: I guess a lot of things are changed, but I still remember some of those railings...

I love that portrait of Karin. Also a great shot of the student; love the framing and the railings, too. Bravo!
