Buildings Of Baltimore

Buildings Of Baltimore

I could have titled this Oshiro 35mm F/2 lens review but that’s boring. Still, all the images were shot using the Oshiro 35mm F/2. I had purchased the lens because I needed a relatively fast 35mm lens for my Sony A7R. Since they don’t make E mount version I got the Nikon version and adapter for Sony E. With the lens in hand I set off to Baltimore on one of the hottest days of the year in August. I…

Baltimore Days

Baltimore Days

I shot this series as a preparation for my Panama trip where I am now. I wanted to see how the Nikon D810 performed in blazing afternoon sun. In addition I wanted to see how I performed in the blazing afternoon sun while carrying the “beast” as someone called it. The Nikon performed better than I did before I tapped out and had a beer after a few hours of lugging it around. I normally take my Sony A7R on…

Lost In A Book

Lost In A Book

I will admit this is an “experimental” edit. There are lots of layers and masks going on. I wanted the girl to be the focus of the image and it was difficult with all the other things going on in the image. Part of the problem was I had a tiny shooting window because I didn’t want her to look up while I was taking the photo so I didn’t have time to really get my focal length right. So…

Flags Flying

Flags Flying

This is the USS Constellation. It’s now a tourist attraction docked in Baltimore Inner Harbor. No idea what the fee is to board it. One of these days I’ll eventually go aboard. My desire to avoid people from walking into my shots is rather strong. I don’t mind them if they fit the image but most of the time they don’t. I need to have a sign or announcement that states “Photographic Genius At Work” or something. That way they…

Docked

Docked

I like this image for some reason. You got the darker side balanced by the lighter side then with the blue contrasting everything. Seeing a US Coast Guard cutter docked in Baltimore isn’t unusual. I believe they have a base near by and Baltimore is a major port for the United States. Mostly cars coming in and out from the automotive plants in the area. There are also cruise ships embarking from the Port of Baltimore as well. Enjoy.

Geometric Nights

Geometric Nights

The triangle shaped glass structures gave me the name. I have no real idea what the building is. To be perfectly honest, I have no idea what the area is. It’s the Baltimore Inner Harbor but I forced myself to roam other areas just to get some new shots. To be perfectly honest this was a fine outing as I got a lot of great shots and with a minimum of gear. Just my Sony RX100M3 and either setting the…

Cobalt Blue

Cobalt Blue

Fairly obvious where the title came from. The image just felt more natural this way. The cobalt blue just made the other colors stand out. With the water looking the way it does from the shot being 3.2 seconds long it felt right. This one is also from Baltimore Inner Harbor. I want to say the condos/apartments across the way are apart of the Federal Hill neighborhood but I would not quote me on that as I have never ventured…

An Evening Stroll

An Evening Stroll

Another one from Baltimore. Still in the Inner Harbor area of Baltimore but in an area I have never really explored. I was just walking around with my camera and snappingĀ the images. I remember this shot because I was trying to shoot the bridge and was having a hard time using the bridge rail for stabilization. It’s a small suspension bridge so every time someone walked it would vibrate the whole bridge. This made it extremely difficult to keep the…

Nature Inside Out

Nature Inside Out

This is the National Aquarium located in the Baltimore Inner Harbor. I am assuming this is some sort of greenhouse type exhibit as I have never been in the place myself. It’s usually packed with people when I go and I tend to avoid crowds. They don’t understand that a photographic genius is at work and walk into my shots! I took this as the sky was starting to go to black or as near as possible in a major…

Neapolitan

Neapolitan

This building is obviously not from Naples, Italy. It reminds me of Neapolitan Ice Cream for some reason. I’m sure I am stretching a bit but its my version of reality so I’m going with it. I have shot this building countless times. Its the Baltimore City Hall. Never been in it, just always on the outside. To be perfectly honest, I don’t remember taking this picture. I saw it when I was going through my library after I dumped…
