Images from the Charles Steet Promenade this Saturday

It isn’t everyday that you can stand in the middle of Charles St. to take a picture.

The weather was very pleasant, but a seat in the shade while waiting for friends was also very nice.

There was some great music.

A geat day to see the sights of Mount Vernon.

After a while your feet could get tired and it was nice to just sit and watch.

To keep us all safe, some areas were off limits to cars.

A great day in Baltimore with some friends.

    It’s fun to see what you captured at the Charles Street Promenade! I haven’t gone though mine yet, but it will be interesting to see differences/similarities in our perspectives. You know I love the one of the person looking at his phone while sitting on the steps – one perspective I didn’t capture and wish I had.

      Thanks for commenting. I tried to make a bit of a story about it, although I didn’t think of that while I was shooting. Quite a bit out of practice as I have mostly been doing nature for the last year or so, but it was fun, so thanks again for getting us together. I am looking forward to our meeting in October.
