You can find some of the most interesting things if you get off the beaten path.  I found this driving Highway 9 in Alabama.  Obviously, it has been around a long time.  Since 1893 according to the sign.  You can only imagine the history for which this building has been present.

Roman Fountain

I had a couple hours to burn in downtown Rome Georgia.  I ran across this fountain in the side of one of the buildings.  The lights were just right to get a good view of the relief carved into the wall behind the fountain.

The Infantryman

I spent a couple hours walking through the National Infantry Museum at Fort Benning.  It is a sobering experience walking through the hall of the museum and seeing the history of infantry in the United States.  This shot is of the Infantryman statue that sits under the rotunda at the entrance to the museum.

The Old and New

Fernbank Museum of Natural History in Atlanta is a pretty cool place.  Behind the museum proper, they have a series of trails and boardwalks.  I had to battle swarming bees to get to this place, but it was an interesting view of some old architecture and new.

Kehoe House

Having someone with local knowledge is tons of fun.  Especially in a city like Savannah.  There were so many stories that I could not remember them all.  At least I got the location right for this one.  I think my guide said something about this place being haunted, but I remember that about all the places we went.

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.

Tybee Island Lighthouse

Today’s Photo: 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.
