# 5 - Weekly Chronicle and Photo Album of our current two-year trip across the U.S. and Canada in a RV with our Ricoh/Pentax equipment. This week, Savannah, Georgia, with my Pentax K-3 and the DA 16-45mm ED-AL


 Hi Photographer friends,

We were in Savannah, Georgia, this week. We were there for only one afternoon, and that certainly wasn't long enough to see what this magnificent City has to offer.  We decided to take a trolley tour and see as much as we could in the short time we had. 



All the following images were taken with my Pentax K-3 and the Pentax DA 16-45mm lens. I didn't walk much in the City and did not have a chance to take as many pictures as I wanted to. However, all my images were arranged in an index and I used Adobe Lightroom to make the images look a little like painting or water color. In Lightroom you can use Sharpening and the Noise Reduction's Luminance and Details. 


Savannah's recorded history begins in 1733. That's the year General James Oglethorpe and the 120 passengers of the good ship "Anne" landed on a bluff high along the Savannah River in February. Oglethorpe named the 13th and final American colony "Georgia" after England's King George II. Savannah became its first city.
The plan was to offer a new start for England's working poor and to strengthen the colonies by increasing trade. The colony of Georgia was also chartered as a buffer zone for South Carolina, protecting it from the advance of the Spanish in Florida.
