I’m a huge fan of slow travel now. I used to zip through major cities — even entire countries — in a week, furiously spraying and praying with my camera.
I’m not doing that anymore. Now that I’m traveling the USA in my Airstream, I have had time to stop and smell the roses. In fact, I stayed in Savannah, Georgia for an entire month and I wasn’t ready to leave.
I stayed on a farm in Savannah that was so picturesque I found myself leaping out of bed at the crack of dawn. The chilly autumn mornings woke me up in the best possible way. I stepped out of my Airstream and 20 feet away were horses, goats, chickens, rabbits, peacocks, and a ton of wild ducks and cranes gliding through the lake. It was heavenly.
Savannah is my favorite southern city and a place I could see myself slow traveling through again (read my beginner’s guide). The light is incredibly dreamy, but the Spanish moss makes it that much more romantic. I shot my first supermoon in Savannah and learned that moonset/sunrise on a misty morning over a lake is pretty incredible.
All of that, not only to encourage slow travel, but to explain why this post is much, much longer than usual. I hope you enjoy these photographs as much as I enjoyed shooting them.
Here are a few pics from Tybee Island:
