Savannah in black and white

In mid January I took a trip to Valdosta, Georgia to visit Z. After a couple of days there, we drove to Savannah for a weekend. We stayed in a delightful tiny cottage not far from Forsyth Park, on a little street of other tiny cottages.

During our two days there we walked all over the town, from the river front to the Starland district, a sort of up-and-coming arts district south of Forsyth Park.

The contrasts between the grand Victorian blocks and the more modest little streets is striking. You can find yourself suddenly in an area that feels completely different in a matter of moments.

So, here are few of my photos from our wanderings. I have some color ones, too, which I’ll save for a separate post.

These little cottages were around the block from where we stayed.

Forsyth Park is filled with impossibly tall trees, all draped in Spanish moss.
