Today’s Photo: 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.

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.
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.
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.
Today’s Photo: Savannah City Hall
I took off one evening after walking around River Street and made my way through several of the parks just beyond Bay Street. I went through Johnson Square and found this angle to shoot City Hall. Traffic was not real heavy, but timed just right that it took forever to get this shot without cars on Bull Street.
Today’s Photo: Cedarcrest Church
Architecture has a great chance to be beautiful any time of the day. I happen to think dusk is one of the best times to photograph architecture. The lighting has a tendency to accent textures of the buildings and lights are usually on. That was how I found Cedarcrest Church just before dusk fully set in. I snapped a few around the church and ended with this shot.
Today’s Photo: Charnell Jackson Garage
I found this little building on a recent trip from Calhoun Georgia to Rome Georgia. I guess I had just put blinders on for all the years that I drove this road, but this is the first time that I had noticed this building. I did not have time to stop in the morning and made these shots in the afternoon. I am sure this shop has seen better days, on the other hand, I liked the way the vines were taking over the old tractor. It makes you wonder if the tractor was put there for show, or just never got fixed when the garage shut down.
