hover above it.
or drifting souls,
dare me to drive
and beyond them.
I hesitate in apprehension
The clouds roll and seethe
in waves and mountains.
I step on the gas.
In the past months, I’ve been contemplating creativity in many forms and randomly taking photographs along the way. A chance to review all those photos gave me the realization that I photographed outdoor murals, architecture, and the wild beauty of Falls Road in Baltimore, plus the interiors of two homes I admired. Hence, this blog entry and the next will be about the deliberate impact of artists, architects and builders on both exterior and interior space.
This entry will feature some of Baltimore’s murals and roads in public spaces. The next will be about domestic design and projects. Perhaps it will inspire you toward some creative project of your own – they are certainly making me think of new ideas.
These sights are on the way to Baltimore Aikido, around or along Falls Road.
The mural below has a bicycle shop below it.
I am always intrigued by bridges and the way they interact with the surrounding area. This is a favorite tunnel created by a bridge over the Falls River and Road.
In a city, overlapping roads and railways are inevitable and the controlled chaos they create is beautiful and made more so by nature sneaking through the concrete.
My favorite mural is by Freddy Sam. It is so big I took two photos to show the whole thing. Freddy Sam’s website, freddysam.com, is well worth checking out. He is an experienced muralist from South Africa and has created murals in many parts of the world.
