Inner Harbor

One thing about places like the Baltimore Inner Harbor is the fact that it has been photographed from practically every conceivable angle.  Nonetheless, 

Snow Goose

With apologies to those who have arrived looking for the North American species of goose (Chen caerulescens), and it's elegant beauty, this post covers a different type of Snow Goose, a boat. It's owned by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and serves as a work boat for the Baltimore Harbor Education Program. I love the foundation's tagline, "Saving A National Treasure", which the bay certainly represents. The boat can often be seen loaded with students and young adults, taking them out on educational excursions and teaching them about life on the bay and what this valuable resource means to the environment.

Having come upon the vessel moored in the inner harbor just after sunset one Fall evening, I quickly setup and photographed the scene below.

Couldn't help but notice the many ducks off of the boat's stern. They must know a friendly vessel when they see one. ;-)

Thanks so much for visiting!

Street Scenes - Fleet & President Streets

Today's post represents the opening of my "Street Scenes" Series where I will feature life in and around cities that I visit. It is my hope that someday in the distant future, someone will view this series of images and wonder how life was back in the early 21st century, much as many of us love to view old photos of life in the early 20th century. This image is an early morning shot looking south outside of the Hilton Garden Inn located in Baltimore's Fells Point section of town. Like most major cities, there are a variety of neighborhoods, each with it's own unique history and Fells Point is certainly no different. Located on the water's edge of the inner harbor, this was once a shipbuilding area and dates back to the early 1700s. Many of the streets in the area are still covered in cobblestone.
