Lovely Savannah Historic District | Georgia Photographer

Savannah Historic District

Its streets are covered by oaks drizzling with Spanish Moss, beautiful gardens, cobblestone streets, and a charming architecture and ambiance It's the heart of one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and it was just about a 5-hour drive away from home. The lovely Historic District of Savannah, GA captivated my heart...and my lens! Although I visited during the very hectic St. Patrick's Day weekend, I must admit that beneath all the chaos, lied very peaceful surroundings. 

 How can you not love Savannah? Gorgeous!

Beautiful Savannah, GA historic Homes 

The beautiful architecture, most of which dated as far as the 1800's, are far beyond what I expected them to be. I was very much impressed at the details of these gorgeous historic homes. Subtle, rich colors, sandstone steps, cast iron gates, and gorgeous brickwork, are some of the features that had me at...wow! I truly, and honestly, can't wait to go back!
