adventures in reflective surfaces
While Savannah, GA really doesn't have a Chinatown, there is one odd former restraunt at the edge of Oglethorpe Square that was pulled straight out of NYC's famous district. Boasting a slowly-rotting neon sign that says, "Chinese American," this unloved brownstone also features still-life settings of miniature ornament in each of the windows facing Abercorn St. This photograph was taken looking into the first of three windows. The lone plastic flower pot is the simplest display of the series; but the reflection has a great view down York Street. The other displays hold toy lions, plastic bonsai trees, and ceramic cityscapes. It's a truly bizarre spectacle among downtown Savannah's rows of early 19th century grandeur.
