Fells Point Area

The riots in Baltimore was wide-spread, coming to my neighborhood and within blocks of my church.

On Monday 5 May 2015 I needed to go to the Post Office and then to the bank in Fells Point.  On the way I checked out the damages from the riots there.  Most of the businesses which were damaged are those which poor people need.

At the Post Office I saw a couple with a child, probably their grandchild.  On my way from there to the bank I ran into them twice and we got into a lovely conversation.  I mentioned the Fells Point Chess Club and they told me that it is a very good club. 

Although I had my Nikon dSLR with me, these photos were taken by my Nikon Coolpix camera.  Generally I carry my Nikon D50 with a Tamron 28-300mm lens.  I also have two Nikon D80 which I use more often when I am not just walking around.  Of all my camereas, the Coolpix has the best megapixels and it can take videos.  But in the long run, it is the least flexible camera for me.  The Coolpix is 12.0 megapixel, the D80 is 10, and the D50 is 6.1.  I ave a Sigma 18-200mm lens on the D80.  I get most of my photographic equipment from either Science Translations or KEH.  I also use B&H Photo.

This used to be my favorite restaurant until they had a fire and when they returned, they were not the same.  It is still a good restaurant, but too expensive now.

Although I have not been inside yet, I am happy to see a grocery store in this area.
