    Taking photos in the Baltimore Area

    Hi Everyone,

    Anyone else in the Baltimore area? I love taking photos during my lunch breaks, and was curious if anyone else had the same habit, and, more importantly, what are your favorite spots?

    I like Robert E. Lee park if it's a nice day (I wish they'd fix the bridge!), or the architecture of any of our many underpasses. I've stopped by Druid Ridge Cemetary to take some photos too. Some of the stones there are amazing.

    Let's share some shooting spots...

    Thanks.

    Hi there. While I'm not in Baltimore anymore, I do get up that way periodically with the rest of the DC gang. We've got a number of favorite shooting spots, from the B&O Railroad museum's outside yard (no fee to get in!) to Druid Hill Park, Cylburn Arboretum, Mount Vernon Square, to name a few. Drop a line if you'd like to get together some weekend for a shoot.

    All of Baltimore is great for shooting. Carroll County ain't bad either. Grin.

    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    I am more of the Columbia persuasion although I have been known to roam Baltimore and Washington.

    I'll be going up to Baltimore this weekend to photograph at the Rawlings Conservatory in Druid Hill Park. PM me if you want to meet up.

    Greenmount is the king of Baltimore cemeteries, followed by Westminster on Fayette. Mt. Auburn is fantastic for the incredible lack of maintenance (better in the summer when it gets very overgrown). If your ever by Druid Hill park, stop by TV hill. The towers can put on quite a show depending on the weather. Also, don't neglect industrial Baltimore. The steel mill @ Sparrows point is tough to get close to without a boat but South Baltimore around Curtis Bay is amazing in a post-apocalyptic of way.

    Jim- did you ever make it up to the conservatory? If not, while I'm booked up this weekend, maybe next would be good. We might have another major snow this weekend too.

    As I told Matthew, I only got as far as the Bishop's Garden at the National Cathedral due to a late start on the weekend honeydo list.

    I'm up for going there maybe on Sunday if the roads are plowed.

    On another note, I need to drop by and do some scanning of my Raid Our Gallery entries. They're due to Steve by Monday the 15th. You can scan 4x5 chromes, right?

    BTW, I see that Cylburn Arboretum is now open again. We might want to hit that one, too, later in the spring.
    Jim
