I chose to take photographs around the city of Savannah, Georgia, while I was there over spring break. The city itself was beautiful and relaxing. I found it very interesting and unique how nature and humans coexisted in the same environment. In other cities I have visited, the impact of man has removed almost influences of nature except for a few hardy species. Savannah, on the other hand, seems to have been built with the idea of nature in mind. There are squares filled with oak tress and flowers every few blocks throughout the city. Vines grow up the sides of homes and lampposts, some covering them almost completely. It seems like nature has the upper hand on the human impact in this area but in reality the unnatural structures still rule. If people wanted to cut down the trees, tear off the vines, or remove the flowers, they could do it in a matter of hours. In the present moment, man almost always has the upper hand over nature but opposite in the long run of time. The presence of nature in the cemeteries was also interesting. Beautiful flowers and tall oaks grew next to tombstones and decorated the huge expanse of area. These two things contrasted next to each other was very interesting. It is the overarching immortality of nature vs the mortality of a human life, the delicateness of a flower bud vs the fragility of our lives, its natural growth and decay vs human attempt to make our presence on this earth last even after we’ve passed. Overall, the city of Savannah was highly inspirational, no wonder there is an art college located there.
