Baltimore

A little over 4 days in Baltimore are coming to an end - and boy was it worth it! Since my main focus was to relax and enjoy the time with my friends I was staying with, I did not expect to walk away with so many great shots!

Baltimore is a city with a lot to offer, but most notably it has a lovely Harbour and a beautiful marina promenade. This is where I spent most of my time, taking walks with my friends, but also looking for possible compositions for photographs. Friday morning I did get up at 4.30 am, got an Uber to the harbour and whitnessed a beautiful sunrise over the quiet harbour. The image below is only one of many I got this morning.

Speaking of Uber - this is a city where you basically need to use it. While there are great neighbourhoods, there are a few areas that need to be avoided for safety sake. Ubering makes this super easy and saves you valuable time you'd otherwise spend detouring those not-so-safe blocks.

Besides the harbour, there are lovely streets, especially Thames, where you get one tavern after another, each one more lifely and attractive than the other one. Leaving those behind, I managed to get my drone in the air close to the inner harbour and I was stunned by the sunset I was capuring with it. The returning boat adds a nice touch to the already beautiful scenery with absolutely otherworldly colour.

Unfortunately my time in Baltimore has come to an end, and I am today taking a train up to New York, but I feel like I have made the most out of it, both socially and photographically speaking. Ihave a lot of new memories and photographs to hold on to. For now I am looking forward to what New York has in store for me, I'll keep you updated!

Until then,
David.
