Piece description from the artist
During the quiet calm of a chilly winter evening, the waters of the Inner Harbor present an almost perfect reflection of the Baltimore Skyline.
A major seaport since the 18th century, Baltimore's Inner Harbor is an eclectic mix of old a new. The now redeveloped harbor area sporting restaurants and shops has only a few vestiges of history linking back to a more industrial past. The modern Harbor is surrounded by skyscrapers hosting the likes of Legg Mason and TransAmerica while still operating as a working seaport unloading raw sugar from cargo ships at the Domino Sugars Plant.
My goal is to create photographs that inspire and cause the viewer to wonder. By blending light and shadow with the element of time, the simple camera can isolate and frame experiences and views not readily appreciated with the human eye. Ideally a photograph should tell a story of a moment or a generation. A photograph should leave the viewer wanting to know more and force them to create their own interpretation and end to the story.
I use various techniques to recreate, tailor and emphasize the scene as I experienced it when I captured the image. While many eschew post processing, I find it a natural extension of recreating the vision of the moment.
