75 for 75: Trees on Georgia Ports facility a reminder of the past

GPA protects and maintains a grow of a dozen live oak trees

An 1830 map of Whitehall Plantation shows a sandy road gently curving through a grove of live oak trees, leading to a lodge overlooking the Savannah River. Much has changed since then.

The plantation is now part of the Georgia Port Authority’s Garden City Terminal, a high-tech, high-volume facility marked by swirling truck traffic and towering powerful cranes. But some reminders still stand.

A dozen or so live oaks remain from that grove. Most of them are more than 200 years old. One dates back to 1649 or so. Its trunk diameter is roughly 7.5 feet and its canopy diameter some 146 feet. Many of its branches curve gracefully and stretch almost to the ground.

Photographer describes how each image was captured and the condition behind the shoot

In 2019, I was more focused on covering events and documenting each milestone that the Georgia Ports Authority reached as they unfolded throughout the year. Needless to say, it’s been a busy year and commerce doesn’t wait for a photographer’s desire to shoot in beautiful light. We have to make the best of every situation and stay flexible. The team at GPA’s communications office challenge my creativity every year. It is a welcomed challenge, but several times in 2019, I just got lucky with good weather and good light. Here are some the milestones that I shot in 2019.
