Archtiecture


My last pics of Savannah for now.  Just a small sampling of the beautiful architecture. Above is a cathedral downtown,The Cathedral of St.John the Baptist, the oldest Roman Catholic church in GA. You can see all kinds of detailed architecture while roaming the streets. The row houses and old homes downtown are just dreamy. Unfortunately, I did not get pictures of any freestanding homes which I consider to be mansions.  Sometimes when engrossed in the moment, I forget to take pictures. Mental note to self-  "take pics of houses" on next trip. Love to walk, or more likely ride,  for hours up and down the streets and city squares looking at all these beauties.
This is Johnny Mercer's great grandfather's house, built in 1860.



And a little bit more of the flowers from a friend's perspective ..
Ok. Now I must return to reality.  Much to do in the upcoming weeks.  When I need a break, I'll reflect on my tranquil photos.  Adding this to the Woo Hoo! Party over at Always Nesting.  Thanks Marla!

I could look at those homes - are those row homes?- and architecture all day. Beautiful, beautiful. I've never been to Savannah. I need to put that city on my list to vacation.

Once again, the architecture is gorgeous. I love old cities, that is what I have fallen in love with here in Winnipeg. Where we came from there were NO old buildings and only a hand full of old homes, not even well preserved. I love Winnipeg for that! Hugs, Cindy S

Hi, it's me again. Thank you so much for the idea of taping electrical cords. I quickly did that on three of my lamps and what a difference it makes esthetically! Thanks!
Thank you for your sweet comment today. I loved it.
Hugs, Cindy S

How beautiful! Hubby and I have been vacationing in Charleston for a few years now and every year I say I'm going to drive down to Savannah.
Prayers to you and your family as you prepare for a new chapter in your life. Lisa

I love the buildings and homes in Savannah. Such a beautiful town. I use to live in St. Simons Island when I was in first, second and third grades. I love the big oak trees with the moss hanging off of them.

Woo Hoo to you too. I would love to visit Savannah. Might get there one day. Thanks for stopping by and sharing my Woo Hoo. I think this is a fun meme to do. Good luck on your move and I understand the feeling you have about moving. As my friend told me one time when we moved into a new house, it will feel like home just as soon as you start making memories. That is why I am a photo freak. The memory keeper.

Hi Tammy...I enjoyed my WOO HOO moment at your blog...I am going to follow and have added you to my blog list. The cemetery below is so beautiful! Good luck with selling your home too. Come say hi any time :D

That's it, I'm definitely coming to Savannah! Just beautiful. The first shot of the church is just magnificent. And I love that you processed it in B&W - perfect! And I scrolled down and read your cemetery post. Is this where the cover art for Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil was done? I love old cemeteries, they make great photo shoots. And they are so peaceful. Thanks for stopping by and the well wishes. Good luck to you on your move! Kathy

I've enjoyed my visit here and as I read about your interests I realized that we have lots in common. Did you get to see Paula Dean while you were in Savannah? Or is Savannah your home? The photos were so pretty...thanks for the comment you left me...God bless you, Robyn

Close to 20 years ago, I used to live on Hilton Head for 3 years and made many trips to Savannah. I so enjoyed the pictures as they brought back good memories! Thanks.

Sailing Simply said...

Thank you so much for your kind comments. I love Savannah! It's a beautiful place to visit. I know what you mean about getting caught up in the moment and forgetting to take pictures. I've spent alot of time doing that, now trying to get caught up on the pictures.

Robyn said...

Thank you so much for following me and for all of your sweet comments. I've had it tough over the last year, but through it all God has been good and He's gotten me through a bilateral mastectomy, 8 chemo treatments and 30 radiation treatments. I will be having reconstruction surgery in May. It will be a happy surgery, UNLIKE the last one. I'm so excited about it. Ever seen anyone excited about having surgery? LOL I'm thinking of using that when the time comes for Marla's Woohoo Wed. That would be a good one wouldn't it? Take care Tammy! God bless you, Robyn

Sabrina said...

These pics are beautiful. I've never been to Savannah, but want to SO bad. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Granny Annie said...

I always imagine that the people who live there just go about their daily business without marveling in the splendor of their city. Definitely Woo Hoo worthy.

Laura said...

I now need to go there.

Hi Tammy, It's me again. You asked what camera I used and here's the answer. The outdoor photos are taken on a Nikon D60 digital SLR that we recently purchased.
And I love the idea that you left me today, I think I will use my bird stencil on one of the runners. I think that would be a great selling point. Did you read what the first comment on todays post was? A woman who lives here in Winnipeg was wondering if something like that would sell here because we are about a year or more behind in Canada when it comes to trends of any kind. I think it is worth trying. Thanks for your comment today. Hugs, Cindy S
