The Blue Door

Today’s Photo: The Blue Door

Occasionally driving around, I find something that I have need to stop and take a photo of because it is compelling to me.  That was how I ran across these teal painted doors the other day.  I actually was attracted to the building because the huge painted billboard on the side and then saw these near the back of the building.  I could not pass up the contrasting colors and I really like the old weathered look.

Fireworks Over Lake Allatoona

It has been several years since my schedule has allowed me to make it to the Allatoona Yacht Club fireworks display.  I made it to the shore of the lake a little later than I wanted and had to settle for a view further from the parking lot.  However, I was still able to get a good angle to watch the show and get a few good shots as well.

Tybee Island Lighthouse

Established as a guiding light for the budding colony of Georgia in 1732, the lighthouse on Tybee Island is one of the oldest in the United States.  It now stands 154 feet tall at the mouth of the Savannah River and still lights the way for mariners.

I took this shot after taking the 178 stairs to the top and back down.  Fortunately, we made it before they shut the lighthouse down that day due to an approaching storm.

The Old Cells

150 years ago, after the end of the Civil War, Fort Pulaski was turned into a prison for Confederate prisoners.  The spaces in the walls for the cannon were closed off and used for housing the prisoners.  This is a shot looking into the prison cells.
