It’s really hard to visit one of your favorite places and not grab some additional shots while you are there. This is one of those places, The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist located in Savannah Georgia. We normally stay about a block away from this location at the beautiful Hamilton Turner Inn so it’s always easy to pop in and grab some brackets. The problem is picking a time where every other tourist is not thinking the same thing. This is a stop for tour buses through the day, so finding this place empty is usually rare. I was in luck that particular morning when I found the place empty, just me, the secretary at the front of the church and the custodian mopping. I did not see a badge on the custodian but he must have been an off duty tripod Police officer. As soon as I set up he started asking questions, he let me continue after a few of the normal questions. That was the first time I have been stopped in this church, normally they welcome the attention.
This Church is located right on the corner of Lafayette Square, a very beautiful and photogenic area of Historic Savannah. Two of the shots below are from the same location, different trip. The Historic Hamilton Turner Inn and a view of the Cathedral shot in IR-HDR. The Hamilton Turner Inn currently use this photo on the Home Page of their website, that’s always a good thing!
