A while back I finally had to opportunity to visit Savannah, Georgia on a long road trip from my home in Houston to visit family in Miami, Florida.  I’ve driven this route a couple of times and to be quite honest, there’s not much of interest along the route.  As a result, I usually spend the night in New Orleans – which means a short 5 1/2 hour drive from (or to) my house, but a long 13 hours from there to Miami.

On this trip, I decided to do something a bit different and stopped in New Orleans (subject of a couple other articles here), and then proceeded to stop in Savannah.  And for something completely different, I had one of my old film cameras with me loaded with Ilford HP5 black and white film.  I love the look of that film and here are the results.  Enjoy.

I thoroughly enjoyed walking along the historic part of the city – going from one square to another and loving the architecture.  River St. with its shops and restaurants was very interesting but it started to get dark as I was walking so it didn’t lend itself to much exploring or photography.  I’d like to visit again and spend a bit more time there as well as visit some of other cities along the coast further north into South and North Carolina.  Maybe I need to plan another road trip!

As far as where I stayed, I chose the Best Western Plus Savannah Historic District for it’s location and price. I only had one meal while there and enjoyed it at Moon River Brewing Company.
