This summer, I'm spending time in the Northeastern part of the United States. I'll be doing some local and regional photography, which I hope to share with my viewers.
Like most photographers, when I travel, I'm not only looking for new photographic subjects, but I often seek out local photography stores. Amazingly, there is only one true photography store left in the Baltimore region! It is located in one of the classic Baltimore neighborhoods: Hampden. While shopping at Service Photo, I asked several of the employees if they had heard about the "Baltimore Painted Ladies." These are brightly painted town homes, or as folks in Baltimore call them, "row houses." It turns out that there are quite a few located not far from Johns Hopkins University. So, under threatening clouds, I went off to photograph some of these homes. No doubt, I'll go back under more favorable conditions to shoot more of these residential gems.
