It’s easy to get lost in the sheer beauty of the Outer Banks in North Carolina.
Personally, I’ve always been fascinated by the pelicans that reside there.
When they’re in mid-flight, they can almost look prehistoric.
On this particular day, I happened to spot a whole flock of them perched atop several poles in the water along the North Carolina/Virginia border.
It was like something right out of a movie.

Cats can be very elusive, shy creatures.
This one didn’t quite know what to make of me, so he decided to hide behind this crate.
Curiosity eventually got the best of him, however, and he decided to peek out from within his fortress – making for a unique capture.

One can hardly walk through the city these days without spotting someone who is homeless.
I spotted this man sitting on a bench at the Inner Harbor in Baltimore.
Rather than ignore him as countless others have done, I used color to draw attention to his plight.
The children looking on in the background makes for an interesting juxtaposition.

There’s something at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor for everyone.
There’s the National Aquarium, the Maryland Science Center, the Hard Rock Cafe…you can even go shopping at Harbor Place.
You can even go for a stroll right along the water’s edge.

The U.S.S. Constellation is easily one of the most historic ships in the world.
The USS Constellation, constructed in 1854, is a sloop-of-war/corvette and the second United States Navy ship to carry the name. According to the U.S. Naval Registry the original frigate was disassembled on 25 June 1853 in Gosport Navy Yard in Norfolk, Virginia, and the sloop-of-war/corvette was constructed in the same yard using material salvaged from the earlier ship. Constellation is the last sail-only warship designed and built by the Navy. Despite being a single-gundeck “sloop,” she is actually larger than her frigate namesake, and more powerfully armed with fewer but much more potent shell-firing guns.
The sloop was launched on 26 August 1854 and commissioned on 28 July 1855 with Captain Charles H. Bell in command.
The Constellation now lives in the waters of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. Some even say she may be haunted.
In this shot, we see the Constellation in all her glory, with Baltimore’s World Trade Center in the background.
