Photography 101: Landmark Day 7
From almost anywhere in the Historic District of Savannah, Georgia, one landmark stands high as if painted against the skyline. The Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist. Twin spires adorned in acid washed green color, grey slate tiles, and gold plated crosses stretch high above the mix of old-world cottage-homes, mansions and tree tops. From every street corner and alley way, you can easily gather your bearings because this church never moves. Just look up. At night the spires illuminate the skies for miles and this structure can be seen when entering Savannah while crossing the Talmadge Memorial Bridge from South Carolina. The Cathedral has been the subject of many photograhers (like myself), wedding seekers and tourists from around the world.
