I wondered what the truth would look like in a drawing. I like it. Like the variety of style and the density of detail embodied in its architecture, these live oaks, magnolias, and spanish moss are SAVANNAH.

Here is the next block on the table: the 600 Block of East Congress Street, south side. This may be one of the more colorful blocks and, of course - it is also quite eclectic.
Brick, wood, stucco/tabby.
One-story, Two-store, Three-story.
Well-kept, somewhat dilapidated.
Good architecture, questionable architecture.
Nice colors for late spring, too...

I am considering drawing a loose perspective of the street which bisects this block -- and figuring out a standard for all subsequent blocks. I love the combination of elevation/perspective but don't want the perspectival street to overwhelm the elevation.

I am measuring with my eyes and a rough building footprint which may not be to scale. I couldn't fit the doors into my guideline grid on this one. So I drew the doors separately and will merge it all together in proportion with Photoshop - in addition to all the corrections indicated by my pencil lines and arrows.
This building is the END of the BLOCK. Next step is to scan all the drawings for this block and string together the streetscape.
I will take some measurements on the next block I draw.
