WHAT’S UP ON CHARM CITY STREETS

Headlining today’s post … Da Motha from the #blkwomen series by Megan Lewis

July was a hectic month, both personally and art wise. I spent the first couple of weeks visiting family in Seattle and the last week or so getting the house ready to go on the market. Our daughters and grandchildren now live in Seattle, so my wife and I have decided to move to the Emerald City. Despite all the hustle and bustle, I made time to photograph the latest art in Baltimore’s public spaces. Of course, it took me until the end of August before I had time to process the images. Thank you for your patience.
