An afternoon in Charm City

Friday, February 3, 2012

Hi! Pretty busy with university these days, hence the limited posting and activity here. Somehow, I got off easy this weekend, giving me the free time to update my blog with photos from the past few weeks/months. Below are photos from a visit to Baltimore, DC's fraternal twin 40 minutes to the north. I should also have pictures from an architecture walkabout of DC's Embassy Row area, and photos from a trip to rural northern Uruguay. Enjoy!

Front door and stoop in the beautiful, historic Bolton Hill neighborhood.
MICA's Brown Center
Puffy. Bolton Hill.
The ex. Baltimore Hebrew Congregation synagogue, with its grey granite facade, and strong Byzantine features. Today, it is the Bearea Temple Seventh-day Adventist Church. Baltimore, especially West Baltimore, is littered with former Jewish temples and synagogues, with a majority of them either abandoned or now serving as churches.
East Baltimore rowhouses slated for demolition, not far from the John Hopkins Medical Center.
A Chevy Caprice somewhere along Patterson Park Avenue, in East Baltimore.
Stately townhouses along Baltimore's grand Eutaw Place Historic District.
Looking south, towards the Harbor. Patterson Park.
A funny menu cover. Station North Arts Gallery Café.
A one-of-a-kind doorway. Bolton Hill.
The Bolton: Roasted Turkey, Field Greens, Havarti, Cheese, and Cranberry Chutney on Sourdough. On The Hill Café.
A very "green" door.
Pensive. Station North.
Wintry trees and rowhouses fronting Patterson Park.
A somewhat bleak scene in East Baltimore.
I accidentally woke up a sleeping cat. Oops!
Downtown Kevin Brown. Celebrated Baltimore local and personality.
