    Last month I spent a day in Savannah Georgia with my family. The following are all with NEX-7 + Sony Zeiss 24mm 1.8.

    We parked in downtown parking garage and headed towards the river. Street performers and vendors were plentiful.

    i-mcn77rd-XL.

    i-PmsSm4F-XL.

    i-mV9njNz-XL.

    i-Cd6v3hL-XL.

    Savannah has a beautiful golden domed City Hall.

    i-xCWW7dH-X2.

    we ran into a group of Southern Belles on a bachelorette party.

    i-7S6XjW4-XL.

    More City Hall luv

    i-SXn2pKJ-X2.

    To get to the "river side" we climbed down very steep and skinny brick steps that seemed at least 100 years old. Later we found out we could have taken an elevator.

    i-nZQdgWs-L.

    There was a different "vibe" by the river vs. downtown. Downtown felt more "Southern" formal while river side was more casual, free and a bit rowdy. Reminded me somewhat of Bourbon Street.

    i-BjX8BHc-XL.

    i-CVVkNH7-XL.

    but with a huge commercial port and river.

    i-LVH4jSb-X2.

    i-ZgcXgkN-X2.

    i-5cFTBTH-X2.

    We walked along the cobbled street and brick pavement taking in the sights and scouting for a dinner spot.

    i-qNmKcpG-XL.

    i-fHz4nC7-XL.

    i-6nxr95K-XL.

    Above the restaurants and shops were apartments, all seemed to have a balcony.

    i-nHgW3s4-X2.

    These older ones made of rod-iron and planks.

    i-DrhmT9v-X2.

    Tried to eat here but the wait was outrageous.

    i-dVSKBc8-X2.

    Plenty of neat shops, bars and pubs with tiny ancient entrances.

    i-BbjX5Nd-XL.

    i-P6BxPSC-X2.

    Looking back "up" towards downtown.

    i-NV7gH6F-XL.

    i-DnnmMFx-X2.

    i-8jXD6Sp-X2.

    After the sun set things really started to come alive - especially at "the Wharehouse".

    i-MKVhn8N-XL.

    i-t8MTDJv-XL.

    This dog attracted a crowd.

    i-b947kBF-XL.

    i-fc2zc6x-XL.

    break time

    i-TR4w3Hg-X2.

    The Warehouse specialized in cheap drinks, loud and raunchy music and a friendly atmosphere.

    i-9BTVMTP-XL.

    i-NPKf3Xq-XL.

    Started to make our way back.

    i-rxQ5nTz-X2.

    i-DWKSLxZ-XL.

    Back Downtown

    i-2c5WgPP-XL.

    One last shot of City Hall

    i-LSdk2G2-X2.

    This was our first time in Savannah and definitely a place we would like to return to for a longer stay. The NEX-7 + Zony 24mm combo was great - very small and light pairing of a great sensor with a great lens.
    I shot everything on Manual in RAW and processed in Lightroom.

    Nice shots! Very picturesque town.
    We stopped in Savannah last year on one of our trips to Florida and enjoyed our brief midday visit. I think we may have even had lunch at Vic's.
