Harborplace Field Trips

Kids on Anchor - Harborplace - Baltimore, MDI had a dental appointment this morning, so by the time I was walking through the Inner Harbor to get to work, there were several groups already hard at work touring and enjoying the waterfront.

This group of kids alongside the USS Constellation has apparently invented their own twist on the old telephone-booth-stuffing game - anchor loading. Let's see how many of us we can load up on this anchor before we start crowding each other off. I think I had almost as much fun watching them as they had doing it.

Mennonite Girls - Harborplace - Baltimore, MDMeanwhile, a half-block further East, a group of Mennonite girls form a serene and colorful cadre as they set out to enjoy a morning field trip to Harborplace.


B&O Warehouse at Camden Yards

B&O Warehouse at Camden Yards - Baltimore, MDThe Baltimore & Ohio Warehouse at Camden Yards, a restored turn-of-the-century building, forms a backdrop to the 1992 Oriole Stadium.

The warehouse is adjacent to my Light Rail stop, so I notice it every day when I disembark in the morning. It's hard not to - this is the longest building on the East Coast - 1016 feet long by 51 feet wide. It's now prime real estate and houses the Baltimore Orioles organization as well as offices of dozens of other businesses.

This morning as I was walking past the warehouse, I noticed a wide-angle mirror adjacent to the building's parking lot. I couldn't resist, so here is my wide-angle take on this very long and imposing structure.

By The Dawn's Early Light

Examiner Building - Nothing to Brag About
The Examiner of Baltimore is a new newspaper that just hit the streets here last month. It's mode of distribution, for the time being, is by newsies doing old-fashioned hawking of the paper.. for free... in the downtown business district and the Inner Harbor area.

Baltimore Examiner Building - Baltimore, MDExaminer headquarters is in a rather undistinguished hi-rise building in the 500 block of East Pratt Street. But last week, I noticed that the southeast corner of the building makes for a nice pattern... by the dawn's early light.

Game Night

Game Night - Camden Yards, BaltimoreHere's what I see on game nights this Spring as I walk back to the Light Rail stop to head home. The train stop is across the street, on the back side of Oriole Stadium at Camden Yards, just past where this vendor has set up.

I'm not a baseball fan, but I still find that the pre-game atmosphere cheers me up every time I walk by here.

Your Insides Are Out...

Baloon Inflating - Steamboat Spring, CONo new worthwhile photos yet this week, so once again, I went fishing in the archives. I'm always surprised to still be finding a decent image here and there.

This one is from my 2003 trip to Steamboat Springs, CO to attend a workshop with Karen Gordon Schulman. My workshop ended Thursday, and Friday morning, just before leaving for Denver and our flight home, Sandy and I took a hot-air balloon ride. Here's the inside of the balloon as it's being inflated.

Take it easy...
