I love this photo...there's something very pleasing about arches. Do you know the reason for the curved lines arcing away from the photographer along the floor? Are they accidental or did they serve some purpose?

Hi Brian, thank you for writing and for your comments. I love arches also and they lend themselves so well for framing other areas of interest. After all, arch construction goes back to the beginning of time and if you think about it, in one form or another, they seem to play a part in everything. To answer your question about the arches on the floor of this fort, these are actually grooves cut in the floor which received iron tracks for the cannon(s) to pivot on. This gave them ability to fire at slight angles rather than straight out the port in the wall. If you will back up two pictures in this same gallery, you will see an example of this from the rear view of another cannon. This other picture is more or less like a thousand words. I hope this answers you question. We are very anxious to travel to WV to photograph a certain bridge there. I cannot remember the name of it but I believe it to be the largest of it's type.

Have to run.....but you MUST map this lovely set of photos.
I like your photo.
Thanks steven! Fort Pulaski is one of the grand old ladies in Savannah along with the city itself. Once you visit, and investigate all the nooks and crannies, it's one of those places you will return to over and over.
