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!
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!
