Baltimore is an amazing city filled with hidden treasures all around its mist. These are photos I took while walking around the city from November to January. Some where taken with my beloved Canon 5D Mark III and some with my iPhone.
Yesterday we spent our Superbowl party with my nephew. Had some kid snack and chicken noodle soup, but we were excited about the game. Though I am not a football fan however it exciting to watch the game with the rest of the city. After my nephew left we went down to Federal Hill to be part of the celebration.
There is something mystical and yet feral about bokeh photography it brings out the kid in me. The everyday mechanical world, driven by logic and laws of physics, turns into a world where the micro turns into the macro, an optical illusion is a tangible energy, and everything is beautifully possible fueled by naive imagination. When I was capturing these bokehs they reminded me of nebulas and stars–some of them even looked like a sun.

These are collection of photos I took while walking around Baltimore. Some wwere taken during my lunch break, cold rainy winter night, or while running errands. It’s quite amazing how the city reveals to you just by walking around and observing its beauty.
Today is another Friday with a numerical twist with an echo, it is 11-11-11. A day full of True and Yes in binary. I put in vacation for this date sometime ago for a dentist appointment. When making the appointment I choose today since it was easy to memorize 111111. After marking that on the calendar I realized this date will not come around for another century. Unix timestamp for today is 1321031471. Today’s weather in Baltimore is sunny and windy with the high of 47.
Today I just got the Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM. Something I have been saving for few month. I was really excited when this lens came in today. The idea of using a fish eye lens without the rounded corners–since this had zoom ability–on my 7D. So far I am extremely pleased with the lens. I have to be extra careful with the maintenance of such lens since there is no filter to protect the 180 popping out eye ball lens.
