I spent the first week in September on a road trip to explore two of the south’s most charming cities, Asheville, NC and Savannah, GA. Alongside my handsome travel partner, we set out to enjoy the last few weeks together before a deployment would take him overseas for the next three months. First stop was Asheville and its historic Biltmore home. As avid Downton Abbey fans, we couldn’t wait to tour America’s castle. With three floors spanning the living quarters of the Biltmore family, down to the butler’s pantry, through the indoor pool and bowling alley, not only was this home magnificent it was also very period accurate with many original finishes. We also spent our time in Asheville exploring a downtown art festival, hiking part of the Appalachian Trail and tasting some of the country’s best craft brews.
Our next stop was the charming east coast city of Savannah. Our goal here was simple . . . eat good food, indulge in frivolities and take as many tours as we possibly could. We definitely accomplished this goal and ended up spending an extra day here, unable to tear away from all these cobblestone streets had to offer. If there was a tour presented to us, we obliged and bought the souvenir photo & cup. Because, why not?
I took this opportunity with new landscapes and free time to practice shooting film on our Fuji GF670. This camera is so many things and a great one to delve into the art of shooting film.
