Summer Begins on a Friday in Baltimore

I’ve never been to Baltimore before, other than its airport. But I was there yesterday, with an afternoon free in between my morning meeting and my evening flight. The less said about the flight the better. But the afternoon was lovely. I felt light as a feather. Good way to see in a new summer.

Old buildings, some of them empty, downtown, with window ornamentation that casts great shadows…

And great reflections…

Musicians come out to entertain the lunch crowd…

A few blocks away, the pride of Baltimore’s developers and planners, the waterfront, a haven of brand name “anchor tenants.” But on a day this pretty, even they look inviting.

But your attention keeps going back to these weird old buildings, tucked away in corners of the city…
