Inspired by Ron Tear's shots of Lincoln in the rain, I went into my archives for a shot from Savannah, Georgia, nearly four years old...

A lovely town, with a lot of real "Southern" houses. (The layoout, I hasten to say, was designed by an Englishman, so every few blocks there's missing building, and a lovely square.

Sheltering from a downpour (worthy of an English August) we saw this young lady making her way along the street. Shortly after, there were cyclists (see variants). Very possibly, all were students at the local art school, which apparently has a good reputation.

It's a popular location for films - unsurprisingly. "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" is actually set there (and based on real events), but there's a random scene in Forrest Gump shot in front of one of the churches.

Tours in buses (motorised or horse-drawn) are fun, even though one guide seemed fixated on a battle in the War of Independence where a perfidious Scottish regiment loaded chains into their cannon...
