city life in detail: 05.09.16

If the end of April and beginning of May are any indication of the weather to come this summer, I hope the rainy days are behind us and the mild temperatures will stick around!

While out and about last week during the constant rain, I was determined to find beauty, color and unique elements in the everyday. Just because the skies are gray, doesn’t mean you need to be! 🙂

Hope you’re enjoying this photography series focused on urban life! Some of my previous posts focused on Georgetown, pops of red, local antiques and food. I’d love to know what your favorite kind of images are; are they colored shots? B+W? Rowhomes? Landscapes? Food? Pets? Spill it… 🙂 What’s your favorite part of Charm City that I should capture?

Here’s what’s caught my eye this week…

Layering. Greenery. Transportation. Brick.

Progress. Development. Neighborhood investment.

Window boxes. Colored shutters. Stained Glass. (One of my favorite local stained glass artists is WhollyTerra – if your rowhouse transom is currently bare, you need to fix that by contacting Steve!)

Sculptural architecture. Movement. Saturated.

Union Station. Silhouettes. Shopping.

Here’s to the start of another week – it may be another dreary Monday, but sometimes putting comfy shoes on and going exploring with a camera (and it doesn’t need to be fancy – an iPhone camera is good enough!) in hand is all you need to change your mood! And on the topic of looking up, this is a wonderfully honest post from a friend of mine that is a good reminder that all of us are trying to keep our heads up and manage life in our own way… I’ll have to add Sarah Hepola’s memoir to my must-read list.
