To BMore in Baltimore

In a couple of months I will be saying that I’ve lived in Baltimore for a whole year. Holy cow. How did that even happen?

How long can you live someplace and still get away with being the new kid on the block?

It’s mid March and, while I’m very sorry to be missing the Hygge-filled snow storms in Nova Scotia this week, here in Baltimore I’m scouring the streets for signs of spring.

This weekend, armed with my Fujifilm X-A3 camera, Rigby and I tried to capture some moments that evoked that feeling that comes when the sky begins to change from gray to blue.Read More »
