I was bored one day and took a ride to Baltimore and was walking the Inner Harbor. There was this giant earthen fort on the other side and I had never walked there so I went that way. In my meanderings I found areas I never photographed before and views I had never seen before. This may sound trivial but I have a poor sense of direction at the best of times. I’m good if I have been some place before but going to a new place I tend to wander until I figure it out. Modern GPS has solved this problem for me but I am still a guy that got lost inside a small Mexican bar. I swear alcohol consumption had nothing to do with that adventure.
So with my wanderings I saw this view of Baltimore and snapped my shot. The day was grey to begin with and I knew when I took the shot it was going to be in monochrome. A few tweaks here, a few layer masks there, and a lot of dodging and burning I’m happy.
