Black and White
Here are some more photos from bea-u-ti-ful Savannah! I thought it would be fun to mix it up and edit these photos in black and white. (I think it's been a good six months since I posted any black and white photos; how can that be?) Even though I prefer color photography most of the time, I do love the contrast and strong lines of black and white photos. Sometimes, I think it eliminates "the fuss" and gets to what really matters about an image, you know?
And can I just say that I really, really wish when L'Enfant planned DC, he'd thought to include squares everywhere with big, lush, gorgeous trees? Instead of squares, we got circles. It's not the same. For one thing, the difference in temperature inside a Savannah square, underneath a canopy of Spanish moss, has to be about 20 degrees cooler than outside on the hot street. It's truly remarkable. In DC, your best reprieve from the heat of summer is to go indoors. Luckily, we do have a lot of great places you can hang out in for free, like museums, libraries, and shopping centers...can't complain about that.
Looking through all these photos has me itching to go on another road trip south before winter comes and the roads get bad. I also have parents who remind me not too subtly that they want us to visit soon...my mom has resorted to emailing really old photos of Peter from college to all my siblings in some bizarre form of blackmail lol. Oh parents, you can't live with them...and you're not safe several states away either. ;)
