Just some shots that I didn’t post earlier of a visit downtown. I wish I had a better balance of this town. There is a lot of pain and suffering going on right next to some beauty. Just like a lot of this county has become. Haves and have not’s, with the middle going away and that means more have not’s.

But as with most of us its fighting to keep our heads above water each day. I must get moving myself making sure we have some future and that means getting to work. Thankfully the weekend has started from the job that pays the bills and now I must work on my personal crafts in between the time with family and friends.

Events got in my way of getting that tripod I wanted to last weekend,  so that is on the agenda today. Also hope to squeeze in some shooting and woodworking. For some reason this week the words have not been flowing in any relaxed manner so maybe stress or pressure somewhere there has me blocked. Who knows. Who cares.

You know what stops me in my tracks? Street musicians. Some of them are so talented. I thank them for improving my day and I wish I had tipped this guy that day but was behind in keeping up with the family and snapping a few images.

First time I think I have been to the 27th floor of the Baltimore WTC. Some nice views.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.

  1. I really loved visiting there in 2005 and 2009. Cool that Phillip’s moved into the old ESPN Zone. Nice pictures as always.
