Georgia Through My Lens – Part Two

Continuing from last week’s look at my Georgian pictures, I present a selection from November and December of 2011. The weather changed quickly in November, with rain, freezing temperatures and snow seemingly coming from nowhere. I made a few trips into Batumi from the village I was living in, Jikhanjuri, including for a wedding where there was dancing, drinking, more food than you could poke a stick at and indoor fireworks!

I took a few days to visit Kutaisi, a little north and east of Batumi. An interesting, pleasant town with a monastery not far out in beautiful mountains.

My three months up in Georgia just before Christmas, I returned to the capital Tbilisi before flying home.

And that was Georgia through my lens. Which incidentally at the time was a basic Panasonic Lumix point and shoot. Thanks for stopping by – May the Journey Never End!

  1. Interesting how that old building had concrete walls at the base but not the rest of the other levels. I guess the waters do come up high there…living life on the edge, literally! haha…
