A weekend in Georgia

Just over a week ago we took the four hour drive to Thomasville, Georgia, to visit family and also to attend the 100th Anniversary Rose Festival. The Rose Festival is one of many special events that Thomasville offers. Last year the festival was cancelled and this year Covid still had an effect. The events were smaller and designed to create less crowded situations. Also, the weather was very bad. It rained some Friday and then most of the day on Saturday with tornado warnings on Saturday. In spite of it all, it was a worth while trip and we really enjoyed our time there. I managed to shoot well over 200 frames. It was our first trip in over a year!

This first post has little to do with the Rose Festival. It is just shots of some of the scenes around town. Most of these shots were from Friday evening when the streets were closed to traffic so people could stroll and see the displays. The downtown streets are a great place to walk around and see familiar faces. There are many quaint and unique shops. Thomasville is truly a lovely little city!
