Cruiser Skateboards and Musical Sculptures

After a busy week and very nice Holiday break, I have shifted back into creative photography mode. Today we have a peek at a street scene taken during the early morning hours of a Sunday morning.

Baltimore Inner Harbor

Baltimore Inner Harbor

A popular tourist stop for anyone visiting the historic seaside city of Baltimore, the inner harbor area was once an industrial shipping seaport with old warehouses and cranes dotting the landscape. 

Architecture and Lines

I have always been drawn to architectural styles with clean and repeating lines. The symmetry of patterns created from such designs just exudes a peaceful harmony for me. Throw in a few arches and some earth-tone colors and I will happily create a photo or three. :-) Such was the case on a visit to the Maryland Capital city of Annapolis on an early Spring day.

I had spotted this courtyard in the distance and was heading to photo it when I stopped briefly to shoot this Free Ride trolley. Once I arrived I found a nice bench to relax and balance out the shot.

This 5-shot HDR was processed in Nik's HDR Efex Pro 2.  Afterward a dash of Topaz Clarity and a slight S-curve completed the task.

As always, I appreciate the visit and your comments.
