Sunset in Savannah

Everyone who has been to Savannah, GA with a camera or even a cell phone has done a picture of the river bridge at sunset. This is my contribution to the mass.

So, a little different take on the traditional:

The bridge long after sunset, about a one-minute HDR exposure

Bridge in the round, with observers.

It was a dark and cloudy night with lots of rain late one evening.


Straying a bit further off the traditional path, 

Raindrops on our hotel screen window that dark and rainy night.

This post is in fond and loving memory of my cousin Tim Blackburn, who we visited in North Carolina just after the rainy images and just before the others. He left us, comfortably in his sleep, the night after we got back to Tampa. Goodbye, cous.


A new next door neighbor

A few weeks ago a new guy moved into the neighborhood, right next door to us. Mostly he just sits on the concrete pond square watching the world go by. Occasionally he goes for an underwater hunting swim, with his head popping up around the pond. He has occasionally been mistaken for an aquatic snake, much to the chagrin of those seeing him.

The longtime resident quackery shares space, mostly ignoring him.

Is that a stick... no, it moved... IS IT A SNAKE??? Nah, it's just the new guy.
