Savannah, GA | Travel Photographer

Here is the final installment of the travel photography that I've done so far for 2015 - a day trip that my husband and I took to Savannah, GA in June 2015. It was one of the hottest days I've ever experienced - nearly 100 degrees with 100% humidity, but the city was absolutely beautiful. We took an open-air, guided trolley ride around the city to learn its history and see some of the famous sites. I was able to get some very lovely photos of the buildings through the window.

 The colors and light was just lovely, even for mid-day when typically it's difficult to get a good photo! The buildings were beautiful, and seeing all of the different squares with old houses around them was something that's not really found in any other city I've been to.

After our trolley tour we cooled off in the city market area, enjoying a cold drink and purchasing some locally-made peach and lemon cookies.
 We then walked over towards the riverside, where the restaurant was located where we had dinner. There was a very nice walking path along the river, and although it was too warm to walk the whole thing we did get to see a bit of the riverside before heading to dinner.
We wanted to head to the most famous ice cream shop in Savannah for dessert (Leopold's; you can see the sign on the lower left below), and were very worried about the storm clouds (as you can see in the photo below). But luckily, they never quite hit; we didn't get poured on and were able to walk around even more after our ice cream.
 On our walk back to where our car was located (at the trolley company), we passed through a number of the squares we had seen on our trolley ride earlier, now with statues lit up and sunset light streaming through. Just lovely!
