Photographing River Street at Dusk

River Street is a popular place here in Savannah. Its cobblestone streets, historic buildings, restaurants and shops keep people filing into the streets most hours of the day. It is a fun place to spend a few hours taking pictures. Night-time, especially, is a great time to head down to River Street with your camera. Make sure you have a tripod and you are sure to get some great photographs.

If you want a different perspective of River Street, especially at dusk and dawn, head over to Hutchinson Island..the island in the middle of the Savannah River. From there you can take in the whole length of River Street and get some great photographs of the Savannah skyline. One of these days I am going to sneak into the hotel over there, head to an upper floor and try to get a photo of Savannah from up high. Will it work? Who knows, but it is worth a shot!
