Careful of the CannonBalls

Daily Post Photo Challenge: Danger

DSC_0116 (2)

Here is a shot of Fort Pulaski in Georgia.  This is the side of the fort that sustained the heaviest cannon fire from the Union Troops.  This damage was ultimately the reason that the fort surrendered during the Civil War.  For me not having experienced war, it is hard to imagine the “danger” that soldiers on both sides experience.  But seeing the pockmarks in a brick structure, makes it more real.

Anyone visiting the Savannah area, Fort Pulaski is truly a worthy side trip.  I hope you can come and see us.

Photo Challenge: Scale

https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_photo_challenge/scale/

The huge cargo ships that travel the Savannah River impressed me when I first saw them and continue to impress me today.  These ships are gigantic.  Each of the rectangles on the deck of the ship is a trailer from a semi-truck, giving you some sense of the size of the ship.  Seeing them up close and personal gives the best perspective.  The second shot of the tug in front of the cargo ship may provide an even better sense of scale.  You can see the tug pilot in the cabin.
