Dec_28_36th_st

Dec 28, 2006

The Avenue in early evening.


Dec_28_34th_st

Dec 28, 2006

34th Street in Hampden, a Baltimore neighborhood.


July_4_bank_of_america_building_2

Jul 4, 2006

Bank of America building at the corner of St Paul and Baltimore, passed on the way back to the car from the fireworks.


July_4_fireworks

Jul 4, 2006

We had a beautiful view of the harbor from Federal Hill. Unfortunately it turned out that most of the fireworks could only be viewed from the OTHER side of Federal Hill.


July_4_flag

Jul 4, 2006

The 4th of July!


Jun_22_firetruck

Jun 21

Fire engines appeared three times at the house two doors down. Never found out why but they kept leaving almost right away so it wasn't a fire.


Jun_16_druid_hill_graveyard

Jun 16, 2006

The graveyard at Druid Hill Park looking lush and overgrown.


May_30_airport_to_baltimore_2

May 30, 2006

This was taken shortly after 5 am after dropping Benjamin off at the airport for a 6 am flight.


April_16_howard_st_bridge

April 26, 2006

Howard Street Bridge.

I don't know what it is but I can't seem to stop taking pictures of this bridge. I love the almost cartoonish color scheme and how the functional elements of the bridge -- the trusses, arches, rivets -- become decorative elements.


April_20_from_window_of_ub_law_library

April 20, 2006

Jones Falls Expressway at Charles Street, taken from the UB Law Library.

Last day of classes for Mike!


April_15_bromo_seltzer_tower

April 15, 2006

The Bromo Seltzer Tower. Apparently this building once had a giant spinning lighted bottle of Bromo Seltzer on top that could be seen from twenty miles away.

I say this with no irony at all: I am truly sorry that the giant bromo seltzer bottle is no longer part of the Baltimore skyline.


April_15_flowers_farmersmarket

April 15, 2006

Flowers at the farmer's market. Lots of flowers and activity -- everyone getting ready for Easter.


April_11_joels_house

April 11, 2006

Flowers on my neighbor's doorstep.


April_9_church_spire

April 9, 2006

A heavy rain fell almost all day. This is the steeple of the church at Dolphin & Eutaw, shot from inside the car.


April_5_clouds_2

April 5, 2006

Cold and blustery in the morning with snow flurries. Later in the day the sky alternated between being dramatically overcast or brillian blue with huge clouds.


April_3_key_monument

April 3, 2006

The Key Monument on Eutaw Place in the late afternoon sun.

Not as warm as previous days but still plenty mild and spring-like. While some trees have already started leafing out, these have not.


April_1_charles_village

April 1, 2006

Houses on Abel St in Charles Village.

I took the picture on the way home from the farmer's market.


Mar_31_inner_harbor

Mar 31, 2006

The Inner Harbor looking east.

We took a walk around the harbor after having a really, really average meal at the Rusty Scupper for which we paid really, really big prices.


Mar_31_inner_harbor_2

Mar 31, 2006

The Inner Harbor from Federal Hill


Mar_16_police_horse_2

Mar 16, 2006

On a beautiful spring morning you're walking to your car on your way home from an errand when you hear the clip-clop of a horse and you turn to see this.

We used to occasionally see this officer and her horse practicing in the field behind our house but haven't for awhile. They've been reassigned to the Harbor and Fells Point.

The horse's name is Sidney.


Mar_15_alley_st_4

Mar 15, 2006

In the older sections of Baltimore there are lots of these cute alley houses -- don't know what street (alley?) this one is but it runs between Bank St and Eastern Ave.


Mar_15_east_ave_5

Mar 15, 2006

East Ave looking west.

We're having one of those March comes-in-like-a-lion kind of days. Monday the 13th was an 80 degree day, today is in the 40s but windy so it feels much colder. The sky is brilliantly sunny one moment, then clouds over the next.


Mar_13_howard_st_bridge_1

Mar 13, 2006

The light rail with the Howard Street Bridge in the background.



Mar_13_howard_st_bridge_3

Mar 13, 2006

The Howard St Bridge from the light rail stop.


Mar_11_orioles

Mar 11, 2006

On the most beautiful day of the year so far why would we have spent any time at all in a bar?

I can't give a good reason but it was fun. And it was only for a short while.


Mar_11_druid_hill_lake_3_1

Mar 11, 2006

The lake in Druid Hill Park early this morning.


Mar_8_neon_sign_eastern_ave

Mar 8, 2006

Eastern Avenue at dusk


Mar_8_howard_st

Mar 8, 2006

Howard St by the Ottobar.

No, I've never been to the Ottobar. I'm afraid of some humiliating incident where I am mistaken for someone's mother. Or I get addressed as ma'am.

That ma'am stuff REALLY gets on my nerves.


Henningers

Mar 4, 2006

Accidental photo of table at Henninger's Tavern. Dinner was delicious.


Little_italy_sign

Mar 2, 2006

A grey and overcast afternoon in Little Italy.


Mar_1_wash_monument_2

Mar 1, 2006

Baltimore's Washington Monument.

I parked on Monument St west of the Monument, and as I walked down the street to a meeting I was attending this was in the distance.


Eutaw_robert_st

Feb 26, 2006

The corner of Eutaw & Robert in early morning light.


Feb_23_coming_into_baltimore

Feb 23, 2006 afternoon

Driving into Baltimore. I know, I know, again with the pictures from the car. I love this view though.

Check out how incredibly blue that sky is.


Statue_at_druid_park_2

Feb 23, 2006

There was a mist hanging over Druid Hill Park this morning.

Don't know who this statue figure is, I've never actually gone up close enough to read its information.


Druid_park_lake_in_mist_3

Feb 23, 2006

Morning mist over the lake at Druid Hill Park.


Park_ave_8

Feb 22, 2006

This has been a grey and overcast day. Snow flurries this morning, then rain. Tomorrow a promise of spring-like weather and then this weekend, artic weather.


Graffiti

Feb 22, 2006

Not your average graffiti. I'm guessing that there's an art student behind this graffiti.


Sterling_kids

Feb 20, 2006

I don't know who these kids are but they came running out of Sterling Seafood when they saw me taking pictures and asked to have their picture taken. They thought I was with a newspaper and wanted to have their picture in the newspaper. I offered the next best thing: the internet.

To the kids in the photo: If you see this, hi!


Remington

Feb 20, 2006

29th Street in late afternoon sunlight.


Park_ave_at_night

Feb 15, 2006

A mild night with a full moon.


Park_ave_at_night_4

Feb 15, 2006

I like these nighttime pictues and to me the lack of sharpness gives them a dream-like quality.


Marlborough

Feb 14, 2005

The Marlborough Apartments in the glow of late day winter sun.


Sunset_backporch

Feb 14, 2006

This was the view from our third floor porch yesterday evening.


Pink_flamingos

Feb 14, 2006

I drive past this whenever I go to the grocery store in Hampden, which is a neighborhood near ours. It's startling to see a 2-story high flamingo.


Entering_baltimore

Feb 14, 2006

I love driving into Baltimore on 395 and looking down into the city. Benjamin took these pictures while I was driving. Mike tells me to forget the pictures shot from the car but I'm always hopeful that I'm going to get a great image. One of these days...


Snow_view_feb_13_2006

Feb 13, 2006

The day after the big snow we woke to a brilliantly sunny day. By the end of the week 60 degree weather is predicted. This has been an unsual winter weather-wise.


Snow_laurens_st_feb_12_2006

Feb 12, 2006

We had a few small snows in December and none in January. This was our first real snowstorm of the season.

It started to snow Saturday afternoon but didn't stick. It began to snow harder Saturday evening and it continued snowing all through the night.

I don't know what the official amount of snow in our neighborhood was. About a mile away they had 11 inches but ours wasn't that deep -- probably more like eight to ten inches.



Snow_down_bolton_st_2_feb_12_2006

Feb 12, 2006

Another snowy street in the neighborhood.


Sumpter_park_feb_12_2006

Feb 12, 2006

The park behind our house taken early Sunday morning. It was still snowing lightly and there were not yet footsteps. The dogs, Mike, and I of course took care of that.


Towards_north_ave_feb_11

Feb 11, 2006

Waiting for the snow to start.
