A day of rain - Savannah

Who says the sun has to always shine? I love to wander out of doors no matter what the weather and rainy days are some of the best for photography - the colors are super-saturated, the streets are deserted, and the puddles are lots of fun.  Just bring an umbrella. And waterproof shoes.

Back in the Day Bakery

One of Sara Merrick's favorite haunts in Savannah is Back in the Day Bakery. So on my recent trip, Sara insisted I experience this bakery, one of the hidden gems of the city, for scrumptious cupcakes. She was right! Though it was slightly off the tourist route, about 12 blocks away from the heart of the city, it was worth the trip. The funky, slightly retro decor was appealing to me from a photographic perspective while the valentine's day chocolate Ganache iced cupcake with a heart cookie on top appealed to my sweet tooth. Here's a montage I created from the images I took inside the bakery. Thanks, Back in the Day, for a yummy diversion on a rainy Savannah afternoon!

Streets of Savannah

Savannah is sweet any time of year, but there's a certain appeal to being here when there's a chill in the air and a minimum of tourists, and always with the promise of great photo ops on the streets, among the trees, in the cemeteries, and beneath the Spanish Moss. Charming. Delightful. Mysterious. Quirky. And even better with new friends (so good to finally meet you Sara!).

The Georgia Swamp

One of the upsides to traveling alone (and by car) is that when I drive by something that strikes me, I can stop, take a break and snap a few photos. I didn't spend more than 10 minutes at this location, but it really drew me because of how it embodies this part of the country I'm now living in. And it's about 25 minutes from my house thus easy to get back to should I have the desire. Welcome to the swamps of Georgia!

A Winter Landscape

Though I have been really busy this last week photographing Dayton and Easton friends, family and clients, I always try to fit in a little time to photograph the world around me, sans people. One such opportunity presented itself late last week on the drive from Yellow Springs back to Dayton. The stark winter landscape, illuminated by the late afternoon sun. revealed the true colors of winter in the midwest....simple, but beautiful.
