Fall in Savannah, GA.

I'm joining in with Hey Harriet's Shadow Shot Sunday #125 with shadow shots taken last autumn whilst walking through the Historic District of Savannah, GA.
A simple wreath adorned with faux flowers and a pretty ribbon.
The way the foliage shadows stand out against the grey/black door fascinated me.


The house next door was unadorned but still very interesting to me with dappled shadows on the old bricks of the pavement and walls.
This home is very close to Mrs Wilkes Dining Room where I shall be joining 87 other members of the Quimper Club International for dinner on Monday evening 25th October.

  1. Ahhhh....Savannah, Georgia. I absolutely Love it there. I think you could find something to snap a photo of almost everywhere you turn.
    Your photos are proof of that. You captured a quaint and lovely setting filled with shadows.
    Thanks for sharing and for reminding me of what a beautiful place Savannah is!!

  2. I adore Savannah and was so lucky to take a trip there a few years ago. You've come a long way to visit and your pictures are proof why. Gorgeous architecture and homes everywhere.

    Enjoy your trip and the Quimpers Club event.

  4. What a beautiful city - and your shots are lovely and evocative of a gentler time, when a welcome was pretty much assured and locks weren't so important.
    I hope to visit Savannah in the winter at one end or another of a cruise through the Panama canal. We haven't been there for over 30 years and it's not that far from Fort Lauderdale Florida, so we'll tack on an extra week and see something of that area. Can't wait!

  5. Maggie, it won't be long now and we'll be sitting across the table from each other with a cup of tea. You know you have me studying shadows now. I need to remember to take my camera along on our morning walks. Saw some great shadows this morning. ;-)

    Lovely post! ~ Sarah

  19. Hi Maggie,
    You always post some of the best shadow shots. I really like the door and the brick in the 2nd photo. It looks like such a cool place.
    I have never been to Savannah. It looks like a wonderful place to visit.
