We had time yesterday morning to head to downtown Savannah before our late afternoon flight. We attempted to eat lunch at Paula Deans restaurant, The Lady and Son’s, but it was too long a wait. Our walk through the city lead us into three candy stores, each one offering samples of their goods. Being willing customers, we took our share of these samples. After a while the sugar rush kicks in and scenes such as above happen. Here is Eugene and Ali all sugared up.
Along City Market I ran into Marilyn so Eugene took a photo with her showing me a little leg.
I spent some time just watching and talking with this gentleman while he made his Savannah Rose. They are made from banana or palm leaves and can range in a variety of green and yellow shades. Along River Street in Savannah you will encounter many of these craftsmen, working with their hands to create art. I admire individuals who work and create with their hands. We live in a culture when most of what we purchase is machine manufactured. When I think about it our clothing, shoes, watch, sunglasses, etc., are all manufactured by machinery. What was the last thing you purchase that was handmade?
While walking in a park in Savannah I was drawn to a vine entwined metal archway. I was not satisfied with any of my images. Something was missing. As I started to leave I noticed the bench in the background. My mind then envisioned the scene you see above. I shortened my DOF and moved in closer to the archway, eliminating it. I like this image as it is no longer a snapshot but pulls the two subjects together and removes the busy street scene in the background. Please let me know what this scene says to you.
Shelley and I spent aobut 4 hours along the River Walk in Savannah, GA. yesterday afternoon. Octoberfest was the happening thing with booths, music and lots of food. We found these young ladies working on some ice cream and asked if I could take a photo. The young lady on the left was so involved, she did not answer me. She just kept on eating. Can’t blame her.
