It was great to be home in Baltimore this weekend after a long stretch of working and traveling. As an added bonus, I was assigned to cover my second Liverpool FC football match of the week, as they happened to be playing at M&T Bank Stadium when I was in Baltimore.

Unfortunately, there weren’t many action pictures to be made, as the game ended in a 0-0 draw without any real scoring opportunities for either team. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed shooting, sweating it out in the 90 plus degree heat, looking for good fan features, and, most importantly, seeing colleagues from the Baltimore area for the first time in awhile. 

I hope you enjoy these few from the match!

I tooled around Baltimore a few days ago with my buddy in his pimped out new Jeep. He wanted to enter some photos into a Jeep of the Month contest, so we headed out in search of some good urban spots. 

Car photography is something I’ve never done before until now, and I have to say it was a lot of fun. We got some great looking shots without any extra lighting, fancy set ups, or any other bells and whistles. The car looked good enough as is. That being said, I think I could get more creative on future shoots. 

In retrospect, hauling through private driveways in the Ritz-Carlton harborplace apartment complexes and convincing a valet boy to let us drive right up to the water where cars don’t go likely weren’t the best ideas, but I venture that that’s what it takes to get some winning shots. 

I’ve got plenty of frames from the afternoon that are better than this one, but, in hopes of winning some contests, they can’t be published anywhere before being submitted.
