12-16 East North Avenue, 2013 & 2015. Centre Theatre before and after renovation/rehab.

Photographed the entire 1600 block of East North Avenue this morning. The Great Blacks in Wax Museum is planning on tearing this entire block down to expand and build a big glass building. Only the corner buildings will remain. Seems like a waste to me. #bmoreblockbyblock #northavenue #eastbaltimore #rowhouses #historic #architecture #history #preservation #greatblacksinwaxmuseum #baltimore #bmore #vacants #demolition #buildanddestroy

“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…

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