I have been associated with Baltimore, Maryland for much of the last 25 years. I have watched it evolve from a down-on-its-luck shadow of its industrial past to a new, modern and vibrant city. Last month, as part of the War of 1812 Bicentennial celebrations, they hosted a visit by over 40 ships, from 3-masted tall ships to modern warships. The weather cooperated and the citizens turned out to welcome their maritime visitors from around the world.
I went out very early one morning and along with what must have been every photographer within 500 miles, got to photograph the celebration. As always, enjoy the photos from this wonderful event.
