    OK, not quite Savannah, but still...

  2. Very nice. I haven't been to Savannah before. We're thinking about going to Florida in the spring...wonder if I can get the DH to make a pit stop????

  3. Thanks Lynn. Great read. Lyrical prose, awesome photos, interesting personal background notes. Were elements of Michael Cyprien's La Fontaine derived from the Colombia Square fountain and the tower shown?

  5. Beautiful, both the prose and the pictures. The last was definitely haunting and I think captures a mystery that will always exist in Savannah.

  6. Thank you, I enjoyed that virtual trip to Savannah, Georgia very much. Had to laugh a little at the undreamlike dream. Ah, yes. Nice description. *g*

    How very cool. I love walking through your cities whenever I cross the border, and books like yours are the first ones I buy whenever I visit.

    (Everyone should check out the excellent write up Edward got for his new book in the Leader Post.)

    If you can spare a day, it's worth every minute.

    Thank you for the kind words, ma'am, and you have a very sharp eye. I was sitting in Colombia Square six years ago when I was working on the setting for Michael's house, and the fountain worked its way into the setting. The tower part of the house from the Victorian District actually inspired part of Richard's castle in Ireland.

    I've been wracking my brain trying to figure out a logical source for those ghostly marks. No one was on the street that morning when I was taking that series of shots; I had the entire place to myself for a good half-hour. There were some cars passing by behind me as I was photographing that row, and I wondere if one of them might have been burning oil (which would make the marks smoke) but I don't remember smelling the accompanying foul odor. Basically I'm just as stumped as everyone else.

  13. Those photos are lovely! That house you love just gives me chills, makes me want to time travel back to when it was new. Also like your ghosties.

  14. It's been 20 years since the one and only time I was there but I still have very fond memories of this charming city. I was there because my pirate er husband's ship was in port. It was also the day before Saint Patrick's Day. lol Even with all the craziness going on we still had tons of fun.

    Your comment about Savannah being loud and silent was so accurate. River Street was very loud. Lots of people talking, dancing, drinking... But go a bit away from it and it's like you've gone back in time. The old houses, the Spanish moss hanging from the trees. Peaceful.

    I too have one that makes me wonder. He lives in Australia so not much chance of seeing him (it's been 15 years since I last saw him). But every so often I do wonder.

    Thanks so much for this wonderful trip back to Savannah.
