And now for the real star of the show...
When I was looking up stuff on Baltimore I found citizen of "Charm City", photographer Patrick Joust's Flickr stream. How I avoided his photography all this time I have no idea, but I'm so glad to have stumbled upon it. He is amazing (and tireless). His photos truly tell a real story that honors the city while documenting its quirks, community, failings, and glory.
The number of fabulous photos is really never ending (and are not just comprised of Baltimore shots). Set aside a good chunk of time and go look at some amazingness.
