Druid Hill Park & Baltimore Harbor

Druid Hill Park

It seems like every time I decide to go for a shoot I end up in Baltimore 🙂

I had a day to myself on Saturday and decided to go on another small expedition with a friend “Ms. Alysa”. After asking around and some googling we have chosen the Druid Park and its neighboring areas for a fun day of shoot.

The Park is interesting, it has a nice jogging and bicycle trail with a great view of the city, The area is filled with old, some deserted and semi demolished properties which I thought it was an amazing to shoot.

We started with the tower on side of the park and ended the expedition at the other with exploring “The Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory and Botanic Gardens of Baltimore

After The Druid Hill we ended up with so much hunger and the hunt for a place to eat, despite my adventurous and spontaneous personality and being ready for any kind of cafe or restaurant, my beautiful company had no care for any of the little walking by places we visited and decided we need to rely on the world of technology and phone applications to find a dinner to dine at. So after a little research done by the co-pilot and failed attempt to a close doors, we ended up in a little Greek restaurant called “Samos” which I highly recommend if you fancy a Greek food, have the patient of waiting in life for about 20 minutes and your company is not starving 😛 (Make sure you have cash on you since they don’t accept any credit card but don’t sweat it much since they do have an ATM machine which you can withdraw for a small fee.

Story short, after that we hit the Harbor, enjoyed the side walks, the water, the birds and view. I should warn you the scenery and the walk could turn little romantic and you might get carried away so have your head straight or make sure you are there with the right person 😉 …

Here is a little preview of the bird watching on the this trip and some shots from the back alley’s of Samos:

I hope you enjoy this one too
