    We ran into Forest Gump in Savannah this weekend. Seems he often will hop onto one of the tourist trolleys and say hello. Later this woman saw me wearing my camera and asked if I would take her picture with Forrest sitting on the bench in the park, just like in the movie, but with her camera. I did, and then asked if they would pose for me which they did.

    Life is like a box of chocolates.

    I had never heard the term, “wearing your camera”, before today, but it fits. I always have my camera with me in its case, but when I hit the street it comes out and goes around my neck.

    Remember the book and movie “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil”? Here is the Mercer house. Jim Williams stood trial four times for killing Danny Hansford but never found guilty. This is one of the many haunted houses in Savannah. It is said that Jim Williams always held large Christmas parties at the house and after he was acquitted he held another party, but it was his last. Eight months later he dropped dead almost on the same spot that Danny Hansford died. It is rumored that there are still the sound of parties being held, but no one is there.

    Savannah is a fun place to shoot and there is a lot to see. These were all taken with the Panasonic G3. I only used the 20mm and 14mm lens on this trip.
