“Hee Haw Carryout,” 1001 West Baltimore Street, 2009 & 2013.


Here are two shots of one of my favorite buildings in Baltimore. The name is perfect. The first shot I did in 2009 was with a 150mm lens and Fujichrome Provia 100 film. It was a light overcast day and a little too much glare in the background. I re-shot it a couple weeks ago with Fujichrome Velvia 50 I’ve been using and with a 90mm lens. You can see the B&O Roundhouse in the background.

The rest of the 1000 block to come soon…

“OBAMA FROM THE SLAVE HOUSE TO THE WHITE HOUSE. REJOICE.”

I have a couple of instagram versions of this. Glad to get a 4x5 shot!

236-238 North Howard Street, 2012.


These are just two of six buildings on this block that were formerly home to the Hutzler’s Brothers Co. department store. All six buildings are connected, it appears, and extend over to Saratoga Street. The building on Saratoga Street is now the office for the Department of Human Resources for Baltimore City. I’m not sure, but they may occupy the whole complex. The rest of the Hutzler buildings will require me gaining roof access to the old Stewart’s department store across the street on Howard as well as the roof of a parking garage on Saratoga.
