|The Mamiya gifted to me by a friend is the most moody camera I've ever met. A lot of it is my own fault since right after the inauguration of our relationship, I dropped a bag from the bike carrier, and in the said bag was traveling the Mamiya, completely unaware of the impending danger. For a few weeks, she wasn't giving any signs of life but the New England air must have served her well, and the Mamiya came back from the dead, barely escaping being turned into a cactus planter.|
We were inseparable yet again. Not for long. For her next demise, the Mamiya chose the perfect location - her light meter failed during our hike through a cemetery (pictures from that day will appear in the next post). A new battery resuscitation efforts brought no results.
All I can do is await yet another miraculous ressurection.
|The Baltimore Streetcar Museum opens its doors only on Sundays, when it takes visitors for rides in historic trams.|
|This place gave us goosebumps. We were in a not very frequented part of the city and the over 100 degree weather turned it into a completely deserted place. From a blinding sun, we rode under a shaded area under an overpass and it took is a moment to realize that we were being watched by somebody hiding in a corner. We quickly left but the feeling stayed with us for the rest of the day. When we saw the sign, all we could think about were gore movies.|
|Artscape in Baltimore's annual art festival. Let's be honest here, it's not high quality art. Most presentations and exhibits made me think of high school art projects. But it is a great excuse to walk in the middle of one the city's arteries, drink beer, watch people, meet up with friends, and get stuffed on festival food. At the time Baltimore was ridden by a terrible heat wave but we lived only a couple of blocks away, so we decided that we'd go home every once in a while to cool down. We must be getting old because after the first break, we never ventured back out.|
Here we have the first stage of recent Pop's revitalization - the beer treatment.
