Song of the South

Shared publicly  - 
 
Savannah is the quintessential southern town!
 
Several years ago we visited Savannah, GA and I fell in love with the historic district. There are many small parks in the historic district and many of them have fountains or statures. This is Lafayette Square. It was so beautiful in the early morning light. Such a charming city full of antebellum atmosphere.

Mountain Laurel

A showy shrub native to eastern North America, mountain laurel is closely related to azaleas and rhododendrons. In late spring, it bears clusters of flowers in white, pink, and red.

This Tender Tree

A taste of spring as sprigs of green to grow
This tender tree flaunts limbs soon to be lush
Through scarlet leaves I see the sky does show
A youthful shoot of florets at first blush

What whirling flavors flicker in the air
Soon bees will polish petals with their wings
A honeyed  fragrant  kiss for flowers rare
Sweet nesting bird will settle while she sings

 Soft muted wind is whispering to me
 Suffusing sounds of nature into song
 I listen to the music on the breeze
 A call for mind and heart to chant along

 In dreams of dancing days again I’ll come
 When blossoms bear the fruit of scented plum

Luminous, isn't it?
 
Great Southern White (Ascia monuste)

Along Highway 99 in Southwest Louisiana, the empty rice fields draw hundreds of birds, plus butterflies and dragonflies. But I am wondering why this butterfly had its tongue out on a dead stick-up!

The Southern Magnolia

Magnolias are a striking variety of flower due to their enormous blossoms. The flower is associated with nobility, perseverance, dignity and a love of nature. The magnolia tree is a symbol of magnificence.

Pensacola Sunrise
This was a shot during our vacation to Pensacola Beach, Florida, a few years ago. The sun was having to go through multiple layers of clouds which made for some nice colors.  It must be really tough living in those houses right on the water.  :-)

Hello 35/1.8, I Have Missed You
I don't shoot with my 35mm f1.8 prime very often.  I sometimes forget how much better the bokeh is than my wide zoom until I shoot with it and look at the resulting images.  This was taken along the trail to Amicalola Falls.  This was my first time to go there in several years, in fact the first time for me to go there with something other than a point and shoot.  I brought my ND filters too, so you can expect a falls shot to appear in my stream soon.  I even shot some video with my a6000 while I was there.  

Oh yeah, and of course we stopped in Ellijay on the way home and picked up two buckets of fresh Georgia peaches.

I have many other shots from the state of Georgia in my Georgia album:  https://plus.google.com/photos/112417919317910781482/albums/5752915790965961473

Tag your photos with +Song of the South
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Welcome! I'm glad you're here!

I was born and raised in the South (Georgia, to be exact) and I made this page to celebrate the South and to share it with the world. I share the ownership of this page with my favorite photographer, +Gene Bowker, a former Californian who has moved across the country and farther South over the years to become almost like one of us! ;-)

What is this page for? It's for anything related to the South, the REAL South, the Dirty South, Dixie, that place in the lower right corner of the USA. From the mountains to the beaches to the swamps, from farms to factories, city streets to cozy suburbs, major interstates and dirty back roads. 

Please post your images of the South: the people, the land and landmarks, the flora and fauna, the food (oh the food!), the fairs and festivals. Show everyone the beauty of nature as well as that of modern man-made design. 

While we're at it, let's talk about the southern culture, old and new: the art and artists, literature and authors, music and musicians, actors, comedians, movers and shakers. Talk about people from the South who are famous and those who should be. Did you grow up here? Share your favorite "southernisms" and traditions, history and personal memories. 

And don't forget the spirit of the South: the sports, the schools, the teams, the races, the tournaments, and the championships, both professional and amateur. What and who do we cheer for? 

Think about this: How have the South and southern people been portayed in books, movies, television shows, songs, and poetry over the years? Has anyone from outside the South ever captured the true essence of the South?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

From Wikipedia:

"The Southeastern United States, colloquially referred to as the *Southeast*, is the eastern portion of the Southern United States. It is one of the most populous regions in the United States of America.*

There is no official Census Bureau definition of the southeastern United States. However, the Association of American Geographers defines the southeastern United States as Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia."
