Late last month, I was in Baltimore for a few days. If you were following my site or my various social that I went down to visit a family member. And while in town:
- I stopped by Edgar Allan Poe’s grave. (https://joyofviolentmovement.com/photography-westminster-hall-and-burying-ground-baltimore-md-4-29-22/)
- I had some great food. (https://joyofviolentmovement.com/photography-baltimore-food/)
- Checked out some of Baltimore’s most Instagrammable sites. (https://joyofviolentmovement.com/photography-the-bromo-seltzer-arts-tower-baltimore-md-4-29-22/ and https://joyofviolentmovement.com/photography-graffiti-alley-baltimore-md/)
- I covered a show at Ottobar (more on that later. I’ve been furiously editing a bunch of photos.)
- I took a pictures of some gorgeous murals I stumbled across while in town. (https://joyofviolentmovement.com/photography-bon-secours-community-works-baltimore-md-4-29-22/ and https://joyofviolentmovement.com/photography-jeff-huntingtons-here-there-be-a-dragon-baltimore-md/)
- I also stopped at the Guinness Open Gate Brewery, just outside of town. And honestly, there’s nothing better than pints of Guinness outside on a glorious spring afternoon and spending time with loved ones.

A few hours before leaving Baltimore, it was decided that a stop in Philadelphia for bunch at Khyber Pass Pub and some cheesesteaks from Sonny’s for later was necessary. Interestingly, Google Maps had head north on Interstate 95 through Maryland and Delaware with an odd detour through the corner of Pennsylvania B– including a town I had never heard of before, Marcus Hook, where I came across these dilapidated buildings that are in the process of being torn down.
