On Saturday since I was not a delegate this year, I had the opportunity to explore Savannah on my own. Camera in hand and a little bit of spending money I was off and running. First stop was back to @home vintage general. My favorite store of the city! I was in there at least an hour collecting wonderful trinkets for new collages in the works and some cake toppers for Amy. After this stop I walked and walked and walked. Stopping for a hotdog in the park next to a multi-talented musician and a man making flowers from palm leaves. My other major stop was in the shopscad store. What a fabulous mix of artists in that store.
I found myself taking pictures of odds and ends around the city. Not really the buildings, although the architecture is enough to make a historic preservationist melt. I love the way some of the rough textures created background for the delicate flowers. I also loved all the sounds this city made. It was busy with trolley tours, horse carriage rides, renovation machinery, boat whistles, street musicians and even a man hollering on the street corner about Satan. The infusion of sounds and scenery was enough to inspire me for days to come.
